Subject: *Macbeth* Gangster Movie
Comment: SHK 3.0194 *Macbeth* Gangster Movie
I think what is interesting about the films is that they make
very clear that it is not the moral of the story that makes
*Macbeth* so grand a play. Rather what is at issue is the way
in which the momunentally simple moral structure is at odds
with the sheer force of Macbeth's desire.
