Trivia

This film was the televised version of the sellout stage show, starring Anthony Sher as Macbeth and Harriet Walter as Lady Macbeth. It had an enormously successful run in England, Japan and the USA. It was filmed exclusively at the Roundhouse theatre in Chalk Farm, London, where Nicol Williamson's Hamlet had been filmed over 20 years before. See more »

Very poor
11 January 2013 | by ferdinand1932See all my reviews

This might have been a 'must see' show but on this production it has too many flaws.

Here are some of the weaknesses.

The play is cut by about 35 minutes and is too truncated. That is a real weakness. Cutting the text is not a good decision.

The diction and articulation of the leads is lost in the frenzy.

The reality TV style is jarring. The sound and location create an unclear sound and the text is often lost.

The performances tend to overacting as in the porter's speech about equivocation and with Sher's performance, where in the memorable 'tomorrow' speech he is uninvolved and its meaning is discarded.

This may gave worked well on stage but the TV performance is quite bad. Real shame as Sher and Walter are very good.
