Throne of Blood (1957)

No doubt Throne of Blood has been praised and analyzed so much that it is hardly necessary -- or possible, for that matter -- for me to add anything to the conversation that hasn't already been said (and said more eloquently, most likely). Instead of putting forth any of my redundant and inexpert opinions, I'll simply say that every good thing you've ever heard about Akira Kurosawa (and Toshiro Mifune, for that matter) is absolutely true. Do yourself a favor and watch this film if you get a chance. You won't be disappointed.
