Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood at Castro – 12/11

For the Kurosawa fans out there:


December 11

1:30, 6:15

Castro Theater, San Francisco:

In one of the most celebrated screen adaptations of Shakespeare into film, Macbeth is re-imagined in feudal Japan to tell the tragedy of a valiant warrior’s savage rise to power and his ignominious fall.

Akira Kurosawa fuses the Bard with the formal elements of Japanese Noh theater to make a Macbeth that is all his own — a classic tale of ambition and duplicity set against a ghostly landscape of fog and inescapable doom.

Starring Toshiro Mifune and Isuzu Yamada. In Japanese with English subtitles (1957, 109 min, 35mm)
