Le Château de l'araignée Réalisé par Akira Kurosawa
Ambitious in its classicality, Akira Kurosawa’s take on one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays is more of a transposition than it is an adaptation; he approaches the material’s inherent universality as a foundation from which to build his own broad themes, which stem from distinctly Japanese beliefs and traditions—he even abandons Shakespeare’s language, further removing the ideas from their Western origins.

Memorable for rendering the soothsayers who seal Macbeth’s fate into one pale ghost in the deep wood, Throne of Blood counterbalances haunting and foreboding with enormous scale in gesture and production design. One of the most meticulous of the major directors, as well as one of the most painterly, Kurosawa is in peak form here, disciplining his broad canvases with precisely choreographed movements that blast emotion even in silence.

In this visceral, calculated masterpiece, The Bard’s play is reborn in feudal Japan amidst a fog-cloaked backdrop, high atop Mt. Fuji. The Weird Sisters are instead an arcane forest spirit who warns Washizu of what’s to come, but the animalistic warrior (a hardened, flawless Toshiro Mifune) is too high on his victories to pay attention to such matters, and instead ends up filled with arrows like St. Sebastian.
