Macbeth ★★★★★

This film lives up to the hype. The performances are restrained and realistic, the casting inspired (Cotilliard's French accent lends an eerie extra layer to Lady Macbeth). There were some inspired choices, especially how the forest moves to the castle. I won't spoil that except to say that yes, Hell is murky.

This is the best Macbeth adaptation since Throne of Blood.
