I’m on the fence. I like Shakespeare, and this is one of my favourite plays. But I noted elsewhere that it was “adapted by Joel Coen”. Just how far did his adaptation go? The Coens also have a bit of a shall we say bloody reputation. Part of the power of Macbeth is that there is no on screen violence. Depending on how far away from the original script he went will determine if I want to see it.

I am looking forward to watching it.

“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.”
