This innovative, visually stunning and violent adaptation of Shakespeare’s masterpiece tells the story of a duke of Scotland who murderously ascends the throne after receiving a prophecy from three witches, before being brought down by ambition and paranoia. Enlivened by charismatic performances and a pulsating soundtrack, the film takes in many of the play’s themes of desire, corruption and betrayal making them both fresh and relevant. Whether on the foggy Highland battlefields or inside the claustrophobic halls of the palace the film is brooding, earthy, and atmospheric. Largely faithful to the text and language, this hyperbolic new version is also intensely cinematic, confident enough to be bold and distinctive.
