    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★

    The artificiality of it all is an unusual but fascinating decision, especially the way the architecture-like outfits fit the angles of those incredible shadows.

    Is it trashy? Is it camp? Is it porn? Is it an insightful investigation of the commodification of the body in a post-capitalist America? It's all that, and so much more.

After all, you have to earn a Versayce.

    ★★★★

    A sci-fi of ideas that questions the limits of mankind's ambition and intelligence. Clever dialogues, intriguing performances, and a sharp (sometimes cynical) analysis of technology in the 21st century.
