2020 Spring Film Series: Japanese Films
Akira Kurosawa, 1957
Rated 13+. 1 hr 51 min
Returning to their lord’s castle, samurai warriors Washizu and Miki are waylaid by a spirit who predicts their futures. When the first part of the spirit’s prophecy comes true, Washizu’s scheming wife, Asaji, presses him to speed up the rest of the spirit’s prophecy by murdering his lord and usurping his place. Kurosawa’s resetting of William Shakespear’s “Macbeth” in feudal japan is one of his most acclaimed films.
