The Tragedy of Macbeth

Roman Polanski United States, 1971

'king Harold's rating of the film Macbeth

His first film after Polanski's wife and unborn child are murdered by Mansons goons? It's like some dreadful exorcism. So powerful and so bloody. 'Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player That struts and frets his hour upon the stage And then is heard no more. It is a tale Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, Signifying nothing.
