A Buddhist Song about Man's Insignificance

"Throne of Blood is the 1957 Japanese adaptation of William Shakespeare's Macbeth, by Akira Kurosawa, the famed director of Seven Samurai. In this scene two Garrison Commanders are inexplicably lost in a familiar forest when they hear an evil spirit laughing. They charge toward the sound to confront the spirit, who is singing this profound song about the folly of man's self-importance."
