  1. Nachtreich's rating of the film Throne of Blood

  2. Rafael Fonseca's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    The armor-tight silence as the thread-spinning witch speaks, the death fog filmed in Mt. Fuji, the static sitdowns, it's all so quietly threatening you don't gaze the horror until the pivotal scene, the after-murder as Lady Macbeth removes the spear from her livid husband's hands as his eyes quake. And then the witchghost at the dinners, the treetops seen from the castle, in the silent wind of the walking forest...

  3. Pierre.F's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    Chef d'oeuvre épique de Kurosawa avec Mifune à son plus fort. L'intrigue reprend librement le Macbeth de Shakespeare et interroge ainsi la portée des grands mythes et tragédies.

  4. Marc Saffar's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    Un magnifique Macbeth japonais. Épuré, stylisé, il annonce Ran et Kagemusha. Certaines scènes d'une force incroyable deviennent cinématographiquement référentielles.

  5. RoRoRoro's rating of the film Throne of Blood

  6. Viginti_tres's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    A rather banal read of the bard where all the monologues are internal. In its slow, silences it ekes at some political relevance (Kurosawa is a lot more political than I remembered) and nails a number of atmospheric shots, but feels tired like most Macbeth's do.

  7. FISCHER's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    Shakespeare, version nipponne, exceptionnel ! www.cinefiches.com

  8. Ryan Swen's rating of the film Throne of Blood

  9. Kelvin Thompson's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    Seeing as the meat of Macbeth has already been discussed fairly in-depth, I particularly appreciate that this film has very little in the way of sound, and a fair bit in the way of breathing room, as a counterbalance to the famously dark and gory content. In spite of being an adaptation of Macbeth, the film very easily becomes its own distinctive piece, through its atmosphere and minimal set design.

  13. David Sindmark Hörnfeldt's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    A fine film more for it's Kurosawa-isms than for the story, which is a straight telling of MacBeth. The use of weather grants exellent texture.

    Kurosawa doing Macbeth? Noh way! (I'm sorry)

  20. Gonçalo Rosas's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    9 - Kurosawa's understanding of, and reference for Shakespeare are both beyond reproach. This might be the most technically-immaculate film by him I have seen so far.

  21. muh.'s rating of the film Throne of Blood

  22. GarfieldHawke's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    While the aesthetics are praise worthy, I wasn't all that impressed by this take on Shakespeare's story

  23. Charles Coleman's rating of the film Throne of Blood

    Toshiba Mifune delivers a tour de force performance in an excellent movie. Watch out for those arrows and moving trees! Loved this movie!

    "Admirable, my Lord. You, who would soon rule the world, allow a ghost to frighten you."
