It does not have the bugs of the Orson Welles version. Polanski's everlasting bitterness without exaggeration. Rebellious but not the best.
Polanski adds a twist on the play, using voiceover omnisciently to suggest Macbeth may be a symptom of evil but evil lives on.
The absolute best adaptation of Macbeth
Polanski uses the text very well! A thoroughly good adaptation
Great visualization of William Shakespeare’s classic novel.
Mcduff, more like Mcbuff. I mean damn is that a dagger I see before me or a I’m i happy to see him.
Above the 2015 version this is the best western adaptation of the Scottish play ever.
Uses dialogue from the play instead of an adaption, which is much welcome. Well acted, great sets, and great camerawork and direction
Beautiful and dark transposition of Shakespeare's tragedy
How Polanski succeeded to transform Shakespeare to the screen, with keeping the language and plot as they were is amazing. Good movie.
I remember this movie as a long nightmare with a very unique style.
Good performances but maybe slightly longer than it has to be.
Polanski’s Macbeth captures grim, pervasive hopelessness. Seldom is this bloody tale rendered so bleak and brutal. The effect is chilling.
I hated the play and I hated this movie, worst part of English class
Really boring, I understand it’s not supposed to be super fun or anything but I’m not sure about this one. Ending was cool but that’s it.
One of many not the worst
It’s a fun one.
Polanski’s underrated gem.
English lesson nightmare.
