Between this and Kenneth Branagh's "Hamlet"; Macbeth is the most visually stunning adaption of Shakespeare in recent years. It perfectly captures the dark and grim atmosphere of the story. With it's chilling score and mesmerizing performances from Fassbender & Cotillard. While amazing to look at, but the film overall isn't really my favorite adaption of Macbeth. Not because it was slow or they changed key points of the story, as it's pretty close to accurate. I think trying to recommend it to right kind of audience is kinda tough to find these days. But still, this seriously got snubbed at the Academy Awards for best cinematography.

A brilliantly rendered, bloody and visually stunning cinematic adaption of Shakespeare's best play featuring stunning lead performances from Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard.

Although it's well acted, this stylish and appropriately moody adaptation of the Scottish play still feels dull and ponderous.

Of the very few modern Shakespeare retellings I've seen, this is the most memorable. Shakespeare dialogue is hard to overcome for those who aren't keen to hearing it. This film rides that barrier by showing as much of the story as possible through striking visuals. I wasn't familiar with this particular narrative, but I felt like I got at least half of the details without the dialogue. I admired this different approach to the material. It offered something new, trying to become a more visceral experience while staying true to the original text. You could tell the director had a firm hold on his singular vision. It worked enough, for me.
