    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★

    It gets a thumbs up from me, but only a small one.

    The lead performances are good, but not particularly great, and Coen's style is curious, albeit not as interesting as, say, Eggers' film history-inspired visuals in 'The Lighthouse'.

    Overall, even though the plot is nicely streamlined, I found it rather unengaging.

    Thought it was decent. Haven't read the comics.

    ♫ pre-dict-able plot-lines and chee-sy ro-man-ces

    o-ver-hyped clas-sics and mu-si-cal dan-ces

    wild-ly an-noy-ing small chil-dren who sing

    that will ne-ver be my fa-vo-rite thing ♫

    ... but, hey, it's hard to really, truly hate this.

    The quintessential thriller, Fincher's masterwork hasn't been matched since. By not witnessing the murders, the audience retains the perspective of the protagonists. Like them, we experience only the aftermath of the gruesomeness while the real impact of the film comes from the menacing (and classically noir) mood of hostility and complete and utter despair, brilliantly supported by both style, plot and characterization, all crystalizing the bleak theme of a world in utter disrepair. Perfection.
