The Tragedy Of Macbeth
In another unusual move, the Macbeths are played (magnificently) by aging actors Denzil Washington and (of course!) Frances McDormand, playing their lust for the throne more from a desire to be relevant than from passionate rage.
The end result is a distinctly different and memorable version of Macbeth, very different from the Coens' previous films. It will be fascinating to see where he goes from here.
“Stark but utterly compelling, this chilling take on Macbeth is a visually stunning tour de force. It's as good as you'd expect from this cast and crew”
“Combines the sparseness of a late career work with the back-to-basics energy of a veteran filmmaker starting a new chapter of their career, and returning to the primordial ooze that inspired it in the first place.”
