Macbeth 2015 [Justin Kurzel]

Although it fails in some areas, Justin Kurzel’s iteration of the infamous Shakespeare play Macbeth triumphs visually. Macbeth features hyper-real colors (most noticeably the oranges and reds) , great usage of natural light and stellar-long takes which intensify this film’s ominous atmosphere (along with an eerie soundtrack). Kurzel rarely shies away from disturbingly close,  close-ups making Macbeth a truly visceral cinematic experience. Alongside its strong visuals, the film is carried on the shoulders by two outstanding performances by Michael Fassbender (Macbeth) and Marion Cotillard (Lady Macbeth).
