Excerpt: Contundente, onírica y visceral nueva adaptación de la obra inmortal de William Shakespeare muy lúcida técnicamente y estupendamente defendida por Michael Fassbender y Marion Cotillard. Bienvenidos al infierno de la ambición desmedida; disfrutad… si podéis.
Excerpt: Australian auteur Kurzel reimagines the Scottish play as Shakespeare by way of ‘Braveheart,’ supplementing the text with blood-and-mud battles and full-throated, earthy performances by Fassbender and Cotillard. It’s a brisk, haunting adaptation, owing more than a little of its aesthetic to Polanski’s foggy take, but delving deeper into its protagonist’s hallucinations, waking nightmares, and ultimately, his madness.
Excerpt: If you are already adept at Shakespeare and especially familiar with Macbeth, this new way of looking at the Scottish social climber is for you. If you sort of saw Mel Gibson’s Hamlet once and slept through your Midsummer Night’s Dream seminar, you will feel the pain.
Excerpt: This is a year that has been marked by a bounty of beautiful cinematography, from the chaos of Mad Max: Fury Road to the painterly splendor of The Assassin or Youth to the period nostalgia haze of Carol, and audiences would do well not to leave Macbeth out of the conversation.
