A theatrical and stylised film by Seijun Suzuki. The sets resemble those in Kabuki, with consciously artificial looking sets and props. Some of the sets (shown in this boat scene) are superimposed traditional paintings, like Kawamoto’s animations!
In my essay I discuss Akira Kurosawa’s 1957 film Throne of Blood, the retelling of Macbeth. Here are some images from the film. It’s such a brilliant film and I love Toshiro Mifune, he has such a wonderfully expressive face!
(some drawings I did while I was watching the film.)
