Storyline

"The Soliloquy" is a contemporary short film adaption of Macbeth. Overlaying the elevated prose of Shakespeare's story of murder and betrayal on to the protagonist's vivid layers of stream of conscious thought, the 8-minute film creates an immersive experience. Impressionistic cinematography explores the unfolding events in a highly personal and subjective way, all the while being supported by a thrilling score. The symbolic and detailed world of the film tends to be appreciated even more after repeated viewings. It is the result the director's year-long exploration of Macbeth, which included portraying Macbeth on the stage. Written by Category 3 Pictures

To Be or Not To Be

This is a definite To Be!

Well done modern adaptation of the Bard's MacBeth. I wish all of Shakespeare been learned in the fashion when I was learning the Bard's plays.

Each viewing takes pulls you deeper into the story. There are layers that you miss the first time, that you will notice the second time around.

The symbolism is used well and enhances the story set in Modern Day Washington, DC.

If at all possible watch this in HD and a wide screen. It was far better on a 27" Apple LED than on a MacBook Pro.

I look forward to more from Josh and Category 3 Pictures.
