Lots to like

I'll admit that I'm not overly familiar with The Scottish Play, but I'm always interested in seeing Shakespeare on film. The bleak landscapes were beautifully done - I could feel the chill of the mountains or the wet sand of a beach (which was the setting for my favourite scene, between Banquo and Macbeth). The intensity of the performances provides a richness to the film that means you don't really miss the liberties taken with the text - a testament to the superb cast.
