    TOSHIRO MIFUNE:

    The Two Main Men of Japan

    THRONE OF BLOOD

    Directed by AKIRA KUROSAWA/Japan/1957/1hr, 50mins.


    THRONE OF BLOOD Polish poster, 1958

    A vivid, visceral Macbeth adaptation, Throne of Blood, directed by Akira Kurosawa, sets Shakespeare’s definitive tale of ambition and duplicity in a ghostly, fog-enshrouded landscape in feudal Japan. As a hardened warrior who rises savagely to power, Toshiro Mifune gives a remarkable, animalistic performance, as does Isuzu Yamada as his ruthless wife. Throne of Blood fuses classical Western tragedy with formal elements taken from Noh theater to create an unforgettable cinematic experience.-Criterion (In Japanese with English subtitles)

    “Director Akira Kurosawa had wanted to make Throne of Blood for some time. “After finishing Rashomon [in 1950] I wanted to do something with Shakespeare’s Macbeth, but just about that time Orson Welles’s version was announced, so I postponed mine.”-Donald Richie

    HIGH AND LOW

    Directed by AKIRA KUROSAWA/Japan/1963/2hrs, 23mins.


    HIGH AND LOW Japanese program, 1963

    Toshiro Mifune is unforgettable as Kingo Gondo, a wealthy industrialist whose family becomes the target of a cold-blooded kidnapper in High and Low (Tengoku to jigoku), the highly influential domestic drama and police procedural from director Akira Kurosawa. Adapting Ed McBain’s detective novel King’s Ransom, Kurosawa moves effortlessly from compelling race-against-time thriller to exacting social commentary, creating a diabolical treatise on contemporary Japanese society.-Criterion (In Japanese with English subtitles)

    “Kurosawa’s once insisted-upon reputation as Japan’s most “Western” filmmaker aside, the director whose go-for-baroque Rashomon decisivelyopened international eyes to Japanese filmmaking was rarely shy about his American tar-pit pleasures…”-Chuck Stephens

    MIFUNE: THE LAST SAMARAI

    Documentary by STEVEN OKAZAKI/2016/1hr, 20mins.


    Mifune: The Last Samurai, a new film by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Steven Okazaki, explores the accidental movie career of Toshiro Mifune, one of the true giants of world cinema.  Mifune made 16 remarkable films with director Akira Kurosawa during the Golden Age of Japanese Cinema, including Rashomon, Seven Samurai and Yojimbo.  Together they thrilled audiences and influenced filmmaking around the world, providing direct inspiration for not only The Magnificent Seven and Sergio Leone and Clint Eastwood’s breakthrough, A Fistful of Dollars, but also George Lucas’ Star Wars.

    With Damien Bonnard, India Hair, Raphael Thiery, Laure Calamy


    From the auteur director of the award winning Stranger By the Lake comes his new even more provocative work, Staying Vertical. Filmmaker Leo is searching for the wolf in the south of France.

    “As A PERVERSELY HUMOROUS AND FREQUENTLY BIZARRE TRAGICOMEDY, it fits even more comfortably alongside his woolly pre-Stranger output…With little deference to expectations or prescribed notions of normativity, Guiraudie has fashioned another strange, wholly unpredictable and invigorating anatomy of the human condition.”-Jordan Cronk, Sight and Sound

    “Report From Cannes: Staying Vertical (Grade: A-), Guiraudie’s latest feature (and first Competition entry), finds an ideal balance between light surrealism and formal precision, so that NEARLY EVERY SCENE FULFILLS THE STANDARD CRITERION FOR A GREAT ENDING: SURPRISING PLUS INEVITABLE.”-Mike D’Angelo, A.V.
