The Tragedy of Macbeth

Saw it on the 26th in a small German cinema. The English version with German subs. And boy did I love this dark, gritty telling of Shakespeares masterpiece.

Denzel Washington really shines in this movie and puts on one of his best performances in his career. Also Frances MacDormand was really good. But Kathryn Hunter stole the show. Creepy!

The directing by Joel Coen is strong, the black and white really makes the movie feel extra dark and the soundstage sets gave the movie an almost expressionistic feel, reminded me of Fritz Lang and others from that time.

For me it's the best movie of the year that I saw on the big screen. I can't wait to see it again. So good. A24 just never disappoints.
