(1959) dir Nakagawa Nobuo w/Shigeru Amachi, Noriko Kitazawa, Katsuko Wakasugi, Shuntaro Emi [76 min; Digital]
This adaption of a kabuki play is a Japanese Macbeth about a monstrous ambition whose fruits are murder. A classic of the genre and typically thought of as the best of more than 30 film adaptations, Nobuo Nakagawa's horror masterpiece focuses on the psychology of the characters, particularly the ruthless, cruel, but humanly weak samurai and his abused wife.
