Roman Polanski's Macbeth is unsettling and uneven, but also undeniably compelling.

In case you ever wondered what would happen if Polanski did a Shakespeare production, check out this movie, it's actually very cool. I loved it.

Rich and thick as stew. A graphic introduction to Shakespeare in shocking display.

Bloody yet brilliant adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth. One of the few film adaptations of Shakespeare that I've thoroughly enjoyed watching. Jon Finch was absolutely incredible as Macbeth. I also loved the actress who played Lady Macbeth. Highly recommended.

The very real murder of Polanski's wife was the genesis of this ultra violent take on Shakespeare's finest play. A riveting spiral of hate, ambition and betrayal. great performance by Jon Finch.
