I seem to have a deep love for Macbeth adaptations, first with Fassbender, now Denzel.
And what a performance by Denzel! Watching him portray that reluctance in the beginning before ultimately embracing the peak of madness is thrilling.
Pushed on by Frances McDormand and her willingness to “unsex” herself and Kathryn Hunter’s chilling presence, the movie traps you with its sets and aspect ratio. The score drives it forward. And the cinematography seals it.
What a way to start off the year.
