Kumonosu jo, 1957. (Also known as Throne of Blood.) Directed by Akira Kurosawa, written by Shinobu Hashimoto, Ryuzo Kikushima, Akira Kurosawa, and Hideo Oguni, and starring Toshirô Mifune. Akira Kurosawa's reworking of Macbeth is interesting, but not as compelling as Yojimbo or Shichinin no samurai. Again, from IFC's Samurai Saturday.
