Excellent film - tense, violent and beautiful
5 December 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I very much enjoyed the BBC1 Macbeth. The script was good, the actors were excellent and I thought that the direction and the photography brought the best out of them. The director managed to convey a sense of tension and violence throughout, starting with the initial 'creative' tension and controlled violence in the lively scenes in the kitchen at the beginning and building to the desperation of the final scenes. This was helped by the stylish but claustrophobic interiors. This is an extremely beautiful film as well, heightened by the unflinching close ups of the principal characters as they start to disintegrate under the pressure.
