About this book

Kurosawa's Throne of Blood (1957) is widely regarded as the greatest film adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth. This fascinating interpretation of the film explores how Kurosawa draws key philosophical and psychological arguments from Shakespeare, translates them into strong visual metaphors, and inflects them through the cultural history of Japan.
