    I almost fell asleep in this movie, and I looked around the theatre and saw others dozing off. Which seems like a knock against the film, but I think just speaks to how weirdly hypnotic the whole thing is. An ode to putting down your damn phone and just experiencing sensation, the only true reality, there's nothing quite like it. Also, I bet they cave in and release it on streaming at some point.

    Okay, want a hot take - Denzel is KIND OF bad in this. I mean, he's one of the most naturally magnetic screen performers of all time and so seeing him do Shakespeare on screen is a cool opportunity. But the rest of the movie is so heightened that his more naturalistic Macbeth kind of just comes off as boring. So maybe BAD isn't the right word, more like not meshing with the movie he's in. But I'm not changing the first sentence of this review, that's too much. Movie looks cool as hell though!
