Throne of Blood
June 11 only
Presented by the Roxie and Spoke Art Gallery. Accompanied by a new limited edition screen print by Matt Taylor available for pre-order, part of Spoke Art’s ongoing Roxie poster series.
A vivid, visceral Macbeth adaptation, Throne of Blood, directed by Akira Kurosawa, sets Shakespeare’s definitive tale of ambition and duplicity in a ghostly, fog-enshrouded landscape in feudal Japan. As a hardened warrior who rises savagely to power, Toshiro Mifune gives a remarkable, animalistic performance, as does Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife. Throne of Blood fuses classical Western tragedy with formal elements taken from Noh theater to create an unforgettable cinematic experience.
Directed by Akira Kurosawa. Japan. 1957. 109 minutes.
