The 10 best shots in “The Tragedy of Macbeth”

Among the films that have received Oscar nominations, the one that is receiving the most praise from critics, but not only is “The Tragedy of Macbeth”

Joel Coen decided to sign for the first time the direction of a film without his brother Ethan, confronting himself with one of Shakespeare’s greatest masterpieces and entrusting the two main roles to Frances McDormand and Denzel Washington, who received a nomination for Best Actor in a Leading Role. 

Joel Coen has combined cinema and theater in little more than an hour and a half and the key to success can be found in three elements: the use of black and white, the perfect fusion of photography – by Bruno Delbonnel – and set design – by Stefan Dechant and Nancy Haigh – and the decision to shoot entirely on location. The result is that we’re watching a movie, but it feels like we’re at the theater, a theater where we can go on stage and follow the characters inside an aseptic castle, whose walls look like they’re made of tissue paper ready to be swept away. 

We at Collater.al have selected the 10 best shots from “The Tragedy of Macbeth” that we’re sure will make you want to see the film (available on Apple TV+), if you haven’t already.
