A work of stark chiaroscuro and incantatory rage, Oscar-winner Joel Coen’s boldly inventive visualization of Macbeth is an anguished film that stares, mouth agape, at a sorrowful world undone by blind greed and thoughtless ambition.

“Phenomenally dark and wicked, Joel Coen’s The Tragedy of Macbeth is the most worthy adaptation of a Shakespearean work that has been seen on screen in years.” – Aramide Tinubu, Shadow and Act

In meticulously world-weary performances, a strikingly inward Denzel Washington is the man who would be king and an effortlessly Machiavellian Frances McDormand is his Lady, a couple driven to political assassination—and deranged by guilt—after the cunning prognostications of a trio of “weird sisters” (a virtuoso physical inhabitation by Kathryn Hunter). Though it echoes the forbidding visual designs—and aspect ratios—of Laurence Olivier’s classic 1940s Shakespeare adaptations, as well as the bloody medieval madness of Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood, Coen’s tale of sound and fury is entirely his own—and undoubtedly one for our moment, a frightening depiction of amoral political power-grabbing that, like its hero, ruthlessly barrels ahead into the inferno.  An A24/Apple release. (Dir. by Joel Coen, 2021, USA, 105 mins., Rated R)
