Order Details
This film is the creative product of an auteur. Throne of Blood (1957) by Akira Kurosawa is considered by many to be his masterpiece.
In addition to being part of the auteur cinematic genre, it is also an example of adaptation; Kurosawa’s film is based on Shakespeares Macbeth.
Kurosawa’s film transforms Shakespeare across time and culture, and in this way engages with adaptation theories such as Venuti’s concept of adaptation as translation. It also engages with a larger “mythology”? and as such might be usefully considered through Bazin’s article. It also engages with Andrew’s concepts of borrowing, intersection and/or transforming. Throne of Blood is also an extremely “theatrical” film, a concept discussed by Braudy.
