The Tragedy of Macbeth

Roman Polanski United States, 1971

McNulty's rating of the film Macbeth

The first time I watched this in Grade 10 English Class in High School, was the day I became a Roman Polanski fan. The naked fucking old witches?!?! The BEAUTY of Lady Macbeth, the cold muddy castles, and of course the poetic eloquent language courtesy of Shakespeare make this a MUST-SEE! I encourage everyone on this website to EXPERIENCE this movie and soak in the atmosphere and story and characters.
