MACBETH 1

William Shakespeare’s “Macbeth” has seen its fair share of big screen adaptations, most notably with Orson Welles’s 1948 effort, Akira Kurosawa’s “Throne of Blood” (from 1957), and Roman Polanski’s 1971 production. The latest take on “The Scottish Play” finds a particularly heavy mood to examine, leading the charge with a profound appreciation for violence and madness, transforming the Bard’s puzzle into a raging monster of a movie. Director Justin Kurzel explores his cinematic space in full, grasping the confusion and impulse the drives the saga, while his casting is tremendous, providing an ensemble that bends the steel-like rigidness of the text with burning emotion, finding fresh life in well-worn material.
