THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH (2021)

A truly definitive rendition of a classic.

Stripped back and draped in stark, Expressionist production design, Joel Coen’s adaptation is a loving marriage of stage and cinema—playing off the strengths of both mediums to create something greater than the sum of its parts.

Visually stunning, with A-grade performances. A total masterclass of simple, direct adaptation: it’s a highly classical take, so your mileage will vary depending on your appreciation for traditional Shakespeare.

If that’s at all your jam, this comes highly recommended.
