By deconstructing Shakespeare's Macbeth' it is clearly shown that ambition is the main driving force.
Spoilers This is the best movie I've seen this year. I simply loved it, I thought it did a superb job of bringing the concept of MacBeth into the 21st century. First, I want to address the criticisms.
It seems to me that people went to this movie expecting the wrong thing: Those, however, are more their own expectations than the movie's flaws. As a movie, this is quality work, and I enjoyed every minute of it.
The transformation into drug lords was really quite effective. I think the movie captured the essence of what Shakespeare or maybe de Vere had in mind in writing the play The violence is also necessary, it brings to mind exactly the sort of violence that Shakespeare has in mind.
Does it matter if MacDuff's son is shot or run through with a sword--no, because the point is the willingness of MacBeth to kill children to maintain his position, and how it loses him the loyalty of most of his supporters: I didn't mind the Shakespearean language or the acting at all. I've seen a lot of criticisms of Worthington And because I wasn't expecting the Royal Shakespeare Ensemble, I thought the acting, with a special nod to Victoria Hill as Lady MacBeth, was more than adequate for the film's need to render Shakespeare's words.
In respect to the actual dialogue, the film was strong enough that the Shakespearean lines are automatically converted into your own English I also thoroughly enjoyed the small touches And I think there's things that you pick up in this movie that you necessarily don't in the play.
Lennox meeting with Lady MacDuff after the latter flees I also thought the movie was very well made. Others have complained about camera angles, something that I thought just kept the movie moving apace I thought it was very well filmed, very crisp.
Some have suggested that it could have been a bit broader in settings and numbers of cast I thought Geoffrey Wright struck an excellent balance between modernism and traditionalism, both in action and settings, that, once again, kept the movie closely tethered to the play, but fully played out in our own time and place.
If I had one criticism of the movie, I would echo another in questioning the change in place, and especially the truncating, of the "Tomorrow and tomorrow and tomorrow" soliloquy. I cannot for the life of me imagine why the director chose that way I guess he wanted to use it looking down at MacBeth and his lady, both dead, as a cautionary third person, but it is so much more effective as MacBeth realizes it, with such deep bitterness, first person in his own life.
Other than that one flaw, however, I thought this movie was perfect, and just cannot recommend it highly enough to anyone who wants to see MacBeth come to life in our own time and place.
