South Australian director Justin Kurzel (Snowtown, 2011) continues to address the nature of evil in this striking rendition of Shakespeare’s Macbeth featuring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard. In a crowded field of Macbeth films from Welles to Kurosawa, Polanski, Australia’s Geoffrey Wright (with Sam Worthington) and many other adapters, Kurzel brings a distinctive focus on action and violence not seen since Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood, along with the requisite psychological intensity felt as criminals are undone by their crimes.
