Macbeth

 

Australia 2006, 109 minutes
Dir. Geoffrey Wright
Rating: [M]
Genres: Drama, Suspense/Crime / Shakespeare

 

Aroview: A black-lacquered contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s 'Macbeth' set in the ganglands of Melbourne, with dir. Wright (ROMPER STOMPER) matching the sound and fury of the Bard’s most bloodthirsty play.

Macbeth (Worthington) is now henchman to crime boss Duncan (Gary Sweet) and the play's lords and noblemen become rock-star-ready hoods packing heat. The Elizabethan English jars at first but soon the medieval-chic sets, the sleek black SUVs, machine guns, and the florid language all mesh into a gothic parallel universe that makes its own kind of sense.
