Missing Out

“Throne Of Blood” (1957) - Kurosawa Tide Pods

September 1, 2020

Welcome, Missketeers, to #CinemaLit101! This month we’re your classroom as we take a look at literary classics adapted to film through a cultural prism different from that of the original!

 

We’re kicking off the month with a look at Akira Kurosawa’s THRONE OF BLOOD (1957), a tale of vengeance, power and madness adapted from Shakespeare’s Macbeth, set in feudal Japan and featuring a staggering performance by the legendary Toshiro Mifune!

 

TECHNICAL NOTE: Lex’s audio has some issues in the first section of the show (before the break). We hope this won’t detract from your overall enjoyment of this episode!
