Watched it earlier today, Fassbender's good but when its not done by Shakespearean actors, they tend to deliver the lines awkwardly as if they're speaking a different language they don't understand. Anyway see what you think, the cinematography is amazing.
>>7678955 I believe this happens because 400 years ago English was a lot different as to what it is today, making the constructed sentances sound odd in tounge. therefore instead of speaking the sentances they just recite what they read making it sound unnatural
>>7678856 Meh. Solid cinematography but that's it. I don't know exactly why, but to me, the movie was quite boring. Madness during the banquet and the last duel in particular were dragging. The sex scene was edgy as fuck and unnecessary. Polanski's version is much better.
>>7678856 Had a thread about this last night - beautiful movie, but it only has a thin veneer of Shakespeare to it. It's still worth watching, and interesting to compare to other Adaptions. If you want the best adaptation, go watch Polanski's version.
over-stylized shite, for the most part. not a patch on polanski's underrated version, or throne of blood for that matter
imo, modern films increasingly fail to capture a 'genuine' medieval atmosphere, as weird as that might sound. like no matter how much grime they throw in fassbender's face he still looks more like a world of warcraft avatar than a scottish lord
>>7679247 No... It's language written for the stage, in Iambic pentameter. It is not meant to be performed conversationally as you normally perform dialogue for film. Polanski's Macbeth is better primarily for this reason (not to mention he cuts less of the play and doesn't fuck up crucial scenes like the suicide of Lady Macbeth). Branagh's, Olivier's, and Orwell's adaptations are all the best adaptation because they meld stage acting with screen acting in a delightful way. Kurzell tried to make this one into a western.
