The Tragedy of Macbeth (AppleTV+) Movie Review & Comments


Distinguished Member
Thanks for the great review Tom.

I’ve been looking forward to this as a Coen fan. I never knew the story, bought the 2015 Kurzel film staring Fassbender along with a great European cast and it sat on my shelf unopened (not a good sign).
Having watched the Coen trailer (and loving the look of it), I watched the Justin Kurzel version. I’d heard it was long, lingering and the mist was a little overdone.
Amazing, looked fantastic, great story with fantastic performances.

Really in the mood for this now and glad to see it’s well reviewed.

Agree with the 9/10 and the comments in the review as a whole. The b/w photography, the 4:3 ratio and the mist all gave such a claustrophobic feel yet maintained beauty throughout. Some of the acting was very theatrical which wasn’t surprising due to the source material. Was very good as a whole.


Apple TV shows tend to be slow burners and never grabs you by your throat unlike you others shows in other platforms and yet they always get high scores.
Some of the shows are like watching a paint dray!
