With Denzel’s magnificently calm performance, this film borders on being essential.
The guilt of a crime consuming and unraveling the life of a couple feels so in line with what I love from Coen. So surprised I didn’t make the connection earlier.
While I am glad and excited to see Macbeth brought to the screen with its intended setting intact, I do wonder what could have been if this hand been an interesting interpretation of one of the great texts like O Brother, Where Art Thou? as a take on the Odyssey. But also think it’s lame when it’s just mafia Macbeth or whatever.
