There Will Be Blood

I am teaching Shakespeare for the first time.  Macbeth.  At Harold Bloom’s urging I’ll be screening Kumonosu jô; Akira Kurosawa’s adaptation of the play.  I’m SO EXCITED.

The stills alone!  I can’t wait!!!

Do you think my 10th graders will go for it?  I’m going to start with a clip rather than doing the whole thing at once.  Fingers crossed!
