Thanks a lot acorns!
Your kind generosity keeps the reviews coming!
Joel Coen's slight reworking of Shakespeare's [timeless] Scottish Play is worth the price of admission if only for watching Denzel Washington play Macbeth.
Oh, and for the witches. Freaky, freaky.
Stefan Dechant's ingenious black-and-white expressionist set designs swing between jagged geometries and alien landscapes.
Stunning and haunting.
Noir shadows invade.
Francis McDormand's lackluster portrayal of the demonic Lady Macbeth is this film's biggest disappointment.
Joel Coen puts a fine point on defining traitors as those "who swear a lie."
You know who you are.
Rated R. 105 mins.
