    The Tragedy of Macbeth

    ★★★

    This is a great interpretation of Macbeth, my favourite Shakespeare. Washington is too magnificent to really capture Macbeth's cowardice, but once he takes the crown it's all on. The duel in the throne room and his confrontation with Macduff are brilliant. McDormand feels a bit wasted though? I like the constant presence of Russ though, waiting his turn.

    I'm not sure this should be categorised as a comedy, even though I laughed out loud several times. The cast are great, and what made it so suspenseful is that every main character was right about what to do. Even (especially) when they disagreed. 

    What tipped this from 3 to 4 stars for me was the honest conversation between Sean and Kunle at the end. Male friendship at its best, I reckon.
