Any film of ROMAN POLANSKI has the capacity to shock. Amongst present-day directors, he has a unique eye for casual violence, stark cruelty, believable horror. What better material for him than Macbeth,darkest and most brooding of all the Shakesprear's texts.
From Macbeth's first encounter with the naked witches, this story of ruthless ambition, murder and nightmare carries Polanski's stamp. JON FINCH in the title role, FRANCESCA ANNIS as the scheming Lady Macbeth, MARTIN SHAW and NICHOLAS SELBY help make this the bloodiest, most chilling Macbeth you will ever see.
"Rarely have the lines
been made so articulate
and so meaningful. It should
