A Shakespearean Thriller
8 May 2012 | by (Milwaukee, Wisconsin) – See all my reviews

The Soliloquy describes itself as Shakespearean, given its title, but the visual, modern-day telling of the story is a film in its own right. This adaptation of Shakespeare's Macbeth takes a moment from the multifaceted story and adds layers upon layers of visual psychology into a non-linear, short psychological thriller. Imagine the depth of Shakespeare melded with the suspense of Hitchcock. Though relying on the dialogue to drive the story at times, the images used to describe Macbeth's plight are poetically woven together to flood your mind with an intense psychological battle. The Soliloquy is a truly unique work of art, layering Macbeth to be more tangible and complex to the modern man than seen before on the Shakespeare stage.
