      Leslie Felperin Guardian All the sound and fury of visuals creates a modern texture that might appeal to younger viewers swotting for A-levels. Rated: 3/5 Mar 8, 2018 Full Review Sarah Cartland Caution Spoilers I'm always #TeamLadyMacbeth, and in this new telling of regicide and madness among Scots nobles, Akiya Henry's performance as the scheming wife of our favourite usurper to the throne is a stand-out.

      Rachel M The acting was phenomenal. Mark Rowley is truly talented. The only thing I had a tough time with was the green screen set; it was a bit jarring, and hard to get past. Other than that, if you're a fan of Shakespeare, it's definitely worth a watch! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 08/22/23 Full Review Audience Member And speaking of Lady Macbeth, she is portrayed fantastically by Marion Cotillard in Justin Kurzel's hugely impressive interpretation of Shakespeare's classic. Michael Fassbender is tremendous as the titular king driven to murder by his wife, and his descent into violence and madness is a differing take on previous incarnations. The dialogue is mumbled to within an inch of its life, but this makes for a innovative (as much as one can with big Will) take on the tale. It might not be as amusing as Polanski's 1971 Macbeth, but then again, Polanski's probably wasn't meant to be funny. FILMS I'VE SEEN THIS WEEK Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Black people in Macbeth? Artistic take on a well-known play? Nothing could convince me that makes any sense whatsoever. Litentia poetica does not apply here, not because there can't be a different artistic take on a play, but because we all know too well the reason for introducing black actors. Not acceptable! Besides, I was anything but impressed with the unnecessarily confused and deformed setting. Not good! No pleasure in watching this. In fact, rather disgusted and uncomfortable, even somewhat intellectually violated. Not recommended for any serious exploration of the Shakespeare's masterpiece. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Macbeth is the darkest of Shakespeareï¿ 1/2 1/2(TM)s plays and this adaptation for the screen matches the genius of Shakespeareï¿ 1/2 1/2(TM)s vision. It is breathtaking cinema. Everything about it coheres: the sparse theater sets (enhanced by draftsmanship graphics), the minimalist haunting music, the camera work, the editing out of the comic banter, the anachronistic costumes, the casting (black Scotsmen?) and even the lightingï¿ 1/2 1/2"the sun never shines here. And the acting! Did I mention the acting? What glorious acting: a good man prodded into killing his Liege Lord, the torment of conscience and the madness punishing him like the Eumenides in Greek tragedy. It is a glorious and cosmological work. The vision behind it matches the genius of Shakespeare himself. (Imagine, in it is a recurrent old man, a projectionist, who--throughout the action--is viewing a gaudy Macbeth from the silent film era.) If you approach this film not as mere entertainment, but as a probing into the nature of things, it will leave you dumbstruck. Yes, it is THAT good.
