Throne of Blood 

When: Sun., April 14, 7 p.m. 2013
Price: $10

Perhaps you have a mental alarm that goes off when you hear a film description with the phrasing "it sets Shakespeare's [insert name of play] in [insert painfully inappropriate location and era]." Turn that alarm off for Akira Kurosawa's unforgettable take on Macbeth, set in feudal Japan. Raleigh's institution Cinema Inc. presents the film, which stars the frightening Toshiro Mifune as the murderous lord and Isuzu Yamada as his ambitious lady. There's a terrific spider overlay to the story—the witches are encountered in Cobweb Forest—which jumps the English bard's track to ride universal rails toward its heavy conclusion. —Chris Vitiello
