Comment: Re: SHK 17.0898 Measure for Measure and Macbeth Films
I agree with Tanya, if after seeing only the trailer for the Wright
Macbeth. It's everything I loathe about filmed Shakespeare. Explosions,
car chases, cool dudes with cool guns and pretty looking actors mumbling
lines. I actually like Asian martial arts romps 'cos that's what they
say they are. This is advertised as Macbeth - it ain't.
