Throne of Blood

Akira Kurosawa's 1951 film restages Macbeth in Feudal Japan to incredible effect. Mad king Toshiro Mifune (in yet another patented over-the-top perf) is destroyed by his own lust for power (with, of course, an able assist from his greedy wife) amid fog-enshrouded forests and battle-scarred castles. A masterpiece. In Japanese with English subtitles. 115 minutes
