  • I think he succeeded with this very well, but it is very clear to me that Shakespeare's story of greed and corruption is a main theme here which the whole narrative is relied on

      Akira Kurosawa’s depiction of the classic Shakespeare play Macbeth moved to a japanese environment. Apparently Kurosawa was very clear on that fact that he wanted to make Throne of Blood a japanese film, and that the

      audience was supposed to feel the Shakespeare story was only in the background. I think he succeeded with this very well, but it is very clear to me that Shakespeare’s story of greed and corruption is ...

      • a main theme here which the whole narrative is relied on. Kurosawa manages to create a much more powerful depiction of the story than Orson Welles did before him and Roman Polanski did some years afterwards.
        It’s Kurosawa’s unique ability to think in poetic images that is the main reason for this. A talent that nobody else ever had in the same way, not even Tarkovsky or Bergman, how great they yet may be.
