Capital Celluloid 2013 - Day 15: Tue Jan 15

Macbeth (Polanski, 1971): BFI Southbank, NFT1, 8.15pm
This film, which screens as part of the Polanski season at BFI Southbank, is also being shown on Saturday 19th January at 6pm. Details here.

Chicago Reader review:
'The Roman Polanski version (1971), strong on youth, beauty, and inevitable gore. The wide-screen visuals swamp the dialogue, and the thematics have been turned inside out—but that's what movie adaptations ought to do. It's not major Polanski, but neither is it a meeting of the Great Books Club. With Jon Finch (of Hitchcock's Frenzy) and Francesca Annis.'
Dave Kehr

Here's the opening.
