  1. Nicholas Gregory's rating of the film Macbeth

    Too gorgeously striking in its sensational photography that it isn’t as bleak as it wants to be and can’t help but eclipse the narrative. The images, tone, and mood far outweigh that and the way the old English and deluge of soliloquies not only demand subtitles, but are too poorly enunciated to emotionally be tragic. Beautiful words, appalling (rushed? hushed? unstressed?) delivery that’s confusing and flowery.

  2. mehoKnicks's rating of the film Macbeth

    Faut il être illuminé pour apprécier un tel film? On se rapproche de 300 dans la façon de filmer ça à la limite c'est plaisant mais sinon... C'est pas dynamique, les dialogues sont à la limite de l'insupportable. On est beaucoup trop dans la poésie. Quel dommage moi qui attendait de cette histoire autre chose que de la déception et de la lassitude tout au long du film.

  3. Christofi Cotonou's rating of the film Macbeth

    A grim, artsy film. It's representative of the bleakness and style of current UK directors (like Kotting) but done with Shakespeare this time. Almost A21 type of production. I prefer Polanski's, but this is fine. Fassbender is very, very good.

  4. Lee Matthews's rating of the film Macbeth

    A few sketchy liberties aside (the regicide sequence with Malcolm and that scene with the child in particular), this PTSD take on Macbeth does a fantastic job of evoking place and time. Most satisfyingly, the richness of Shakespeare's language is respected, explored and in many places augmented, something those damning this film have curiously overlooked.

  5. Daniel S.'s rating of the film Macbeth

    ***1/2. Macbeth jogging in the castle, the wind and the witches. Strongly recommended.

  6. Stefan Drees's rating of the film Macbeth

    Shakespeare in the times of "Game of Thrones": There's some pretty impressive cinematography with atmospheric light and colour, and the performances of Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard are at least noteworthy. But the slow motion sequences appear awfully corny, and Jed Kurzel's monotonous drone score becomes more and more annoying and boring during the course of the movie.

  7. Filip Court's rating of the film Macbeth

  8. Erica Narduzzi's rating of the film Macbeth

  9. Scorpio Velvet's rating of the film Macbeth

    Strikingly masterful retelling of a masterpiece.

  10. kınar's rating of the film Macbeth

  11. lou.'s rating of the film Macbeth

    Clearly speaking of the movie, not the Play. Michael, I still love you, nonetheless, this movie sucks.

  12. Ann Burden's rating of the film Macbeth

  13. Lance L O T's rating of the film Macbeth

    One of many Macbeths, but a special one. It's strange why it didn't get more buzz in the theatres, but the dialect was hard even for me. Needed English subtitles, and this because it's a great film. Great choice of locations and wonderful cinematography. The interpretation of Lady Macbeth and the looniness of Macbeth is wonderful and fully justified. A joker like Fassbender was a wonderful choice - amazing film!

  14. Dada Kubin's rating of the film Macbeth

    You can never go totally wrong with Shakespeare, but mastering his tragedies in movies isn’t easy. Kurzel’s film is good but still it feels more like a dramatization of a text than an organically growing movie. Visually impressive, it’s got superb performances by Cotillard and Fassbender, yet something’s not there.

  15. Drew Kelly's rating of the film Macbeth

    A rushed, video-game aesthetic in this version of Macbeth robs it of the play's great tragic heft and personal, human agony. Some nice cinematography here and there, though.

  16. Angus George Alexander Brown's rating of the film Macbeth

    So fair and foul a film I have not seen... the acting is exquisite, the soundtrack is hypnotic, I want to frame every shot because the cinematography and direction are perfect. I cannot recommend this enough.

  17. natalieb's rating of the film Macbeth

    ce qui a tué ce film pour moi c'est son esthétisme. C'est beaucoup trop léché dans la réalisation, je n'arrive pas à atteinde le cru du réel. Même l'excellent jeu des acteurs ne m'aide pas à passer cette barrière.

  18. Arf's rating of the film Macbeth

  19. sklavenmoral's rating of the film Macbeth

  20. MistaRichard's rating of the film Macbeth

    Shakespeare's writing is ever only slightly better than Fassbender and Cotillard's acting in this stylish new adaptation of Macbeth.

  21. Alcock Hitchfred's rating of the film Macbeth

    A beautifully filmed, shallow, whispery, narcissistic adaptation of Shakespeare's play, with a GoT aesthetic.

  22. Rowan Ah-See's rating of the film Macbeth

  23. Sage's rating of the film Macbeth

  24. Monasteries's rating of the film Macbeth

    It was pretty and the music was nice but I could've just listened to a GY!BE album instead.
