Buddy O’s review published on Letterboxd :
Maybe you shouldn't trust my rating if you like Shakespeare.
I never learned it in school so I'm not too familiar with the story. But the trailers really sold me on it.
Between the Scottish accents and the Shakespearian language I didn't know what was being said majority of the time so I guess you can't really call my judgement on the movie as a whole fair but it fell really flat and was tough to get a grasp on what was happening.
The visuals were gorgeous though and you can never go wrong with Cotillard and Fassbender.
But Macbeth as a whole failed to enthral someone who was not familiar with his work or the story. So take that for what it's worth.
