3 things about Akira Kurosawa’s THRONE OF BLOOD

Throne of Blood [1957]

1. The horsemen galloping around in the fog, utterly lost. Nothing can be seen except for the horses, a patch of ground with a few weeds, and the steam coming from the horses’ mouths.
2. His wife vanishing into the dark room, then reappearing with a jar of saki. David Lynch must have seen this shot, or else at least have had the same idea when he made Lost Highway.
3. The streams of arrows. The arrow through the neck.
