Throne of Blood (Kumonosu jo)

Noriyasu (Takashi Shimura) "moves" the forest by ordering his men to cut down hundreds of trees and use them as shields during the attack on Cobweb Castle. The witch's prophesy thus fulfilled, Washizu's (Toshirô Mifune's) men turn on him and murder him.

This movie was based on Shakespeare's Macbeth. You can read Macbeth at MIT.
