I believe that Polanski's Macbeth (sorry, I don't have it in front of me
right now) used the witches as representative of the fates.  Can anyone
confirm?

I have to say that I saw the Zulu Macbeth in NYC and left midway. I
found it ferociously boring, the more so since whatever dialogue there
was had been summarized by minimal supertitles. Others here had the same
reaction, while still others thought it was the greatest thing since
they sliced the bread and put it in waxpaper.
