The Tragedy of Macbeth

Roman Polanski United States, 1971

Kevin Matthews's rating of the film Macbeth

Although it has some problems often associated with bringing Shakespeare to the big screen, this remains a great adaptation, and the best of the few Macbeth interpretations I have seen. The great dialogue is matched by a fine mix of bloodshed, morbid imagery, and all of the usual aspects of "the Scottish play".
