After more than 18 productions made with his brother, Joel Coen He enters his first direction separated from Ethan Coen and brings us a new adaptation of the classic play by William Shakespeare, Macbeth’s Tragedy (Macbeth’s Tragedy). A new story much darker, carnal and more aesthetic in character than ever before. Debut in January 12 2022 in Spain in limited theaters and on Apple TV+ on January 14th.
Macbeth’s Tragedy is a creative reading of Joel Coen from the work of William Shakespeare, starring denzel washington in the skin of the man who wants to be king and Frances McDormand What Lady Macbeth. Both offer in-depth interpretations of jaded characters, a couple who will end up plotting a political assassination and who will go insane with guilt after hearing the sinister predictions of a trio of witches (played by Kathryn’s Huntress, which performs a prodigious physical performance). Despite being influenced by the dark visual design of the classic 1940s adaptations directed by Laurence Olivier, from which it inherits the screen format, and the bloody medieval madness of the “Throne of Blood” Kurosawa, the tale of noise and fury of Coen is unequivocally yours.
This version reflects the current moment through a terrifying story about an amoral assault on political power that, like its protagonist, will irrevocably move to hell. (Will see)
where can you see the movie
The Macbeth Tragedy makes the viewer feel immersed in his world thanks to a perfect production. your director, Joel Coen He does an absolutely tremendous job finding just the right way to add a dark twist to this medieval tale. A story that speaks of hatred and hunger for power, where man (in this case the knight Macbeth) is blinded by the desire to reign no matter what he must do to fulfill his purpose.
No doubt, The Macbeth Tragedy it is a beautiful film and perfectly cinematographically realized. Its artistic design and photography, by the French Bruno Delbonnel, is one of the most seductive elements of the film, as it becomes more of a character in the story and collaborates a lot when it comes to narrating what happens. Not only is it gorgeous for being all black and white, but these shades are used smartly. They express all the darkness and mystery of the film. All the depths of the mind blackened by greed.
Throughout history, there are a multitude of adaptations that have been made of the work of Shakespeare. Therefore, it was observed with a lot of magnifying glass what this new feature film could bring us. One of the most outstanding virtues it possesses is due to the quality of its protagonists, specifically the denzel washington in the role of Macbeth. A carnal performance that manages to perfectly portray the hunger for greed needed to turn this protagonist into a cold-blooded villain.
The film also feels like a play of its own. It unfolds between dialogue after dialogue, monologue after monologue, which ends up becoming a war of internal conflicts. This is how each character and their motivations and turbulent thoughts develop very well as the story unfolds in its tragic ways. Undoubtedly, for the most “cinema” cinephiles, The Macbeth Tragedy it will be a breath of fresh and delicious air in times of such box office success.
Although the film triumphs in its most cinematic work, being a product perfectly made for the most “art” cinema, it is not for everyone. The Macbeth Tragedy It can become very dense at certain points, so if you’re not there to appreciate its details, you’ll be overwhelmed by it. Its theatrical virtues, which involve dialogue after dialogue, may also be its most negative points. But regardless of the different perspectives that may exist, I think the film needs these ideological confrontations. These thought struggles very well presented on screen.
We’re not talking about a fun movie, we’re talking about a very slow narrative. It is not an emotional or sentimental film, which will make us laugh, cry and scare, no. It is a film with the sole purpose of conveying its message about the corruption of human behavior. So, if you are one of those who go to the movies for big emotions, this is not for you. But if you’re one of those people who appreciates brutal staging, you’ll definitely like it.
Joel Coen manages to tell a story already told in a fresh and innovative product. The Macbeth Tragedy is cinematically perfect and has incredible performances, with a denzel washington prouder than ever. If it fails, it’s because it’s too artistic and dense on display for some. But that’s just something very subjective and doesn’t condition its quality because in terms of its story and its development, it’s a more than round film.
