Directed by Akira Kurosawa

(1957)…or Castle of the Spider’s Web, the literal translation of the Japanese title. Macbeth transformed into a medieval Japanese legend, as General Toshiro Mifune, with Minoru Chiaki’s “Banquo” at his side, gallops through a seemingly endless forest to his encounter with a single witch, then, as dense fog lifts, finds himself before a looming castle. With the legendary Isuzu Yamada as his Lady, this is a partnership of titans. 35mm. Approx. 110 min.
