Пока роешься в tumblr, натыкаешься на целую кучу серьезных и забавных впечатлений от фильма, цитирую самые запомнившиеся:


So, thinking about it, Macbeth's just like inception.

The witches tell him he’s gonna be king, He thinks he will, he kills the king so he’s king.



Why haven’t I heard about ShakespeaRe-Told sooner, guys?!

Last year, I discovered Hamlet with Patrick Stewart as the evil uncle AND the ghost of Old Hamlet (apparently in this version they were twins?) and David Tennant as Hamlet and was so amused. Now I discover ShakespeaRe-Told and Macbeth with James McAvoy as Macbeth and Richard Armitage as MacDuff (He was Gisborne in the Robin Hood tv show and I kind of hated his character but thought he was a pretty good actor) and I am equally amused. Also, from what I have seen so far, they seem to be going with an interesting interpretation, with the manipulative and evil wife driving the husband to murder. In fact, she is doing all the planning while Macbeth just stands there like, “WTF are you doing now? Where are you going with those scary scissors? You aren’t going to make me stab someone with those, are you?!” Of course, that could be just because it is McAvoy, who always looks nice and it doesn’t seem like he is capable of being a bad person…

Anyway, they also did Much Ado About Nothing which I don’t think I have actually ever read, but Billie Piper is in it and I’ve been interested in seeing something else with her in it (since she did such a good job in Doctor Who) so yeah. I am very amused. Also, modern renditions of older stories are always fascinating. I’m going to go now.

I thought.. yestarday I cried watching Atonement...

…yestarday I cried watching Atonement…..today I should watch something “funnier” from McAvoy.. Macbeth wasn’t a good choice


James McAvoy in Shakespeare Retold - Macbeth.

Macbeth as a chef in a five star restaurant? Perfection.


ShakespeaRe-Told: Macbeth

It’s the single most tragic thing I’ve seen to date. I knew the story was a tragic one, written by Shakespeare after all. But watching the whole thing with a modern day interpretation in a CULINARY setting? And it still manages to deliver the kind of impact that forced me to stand up and check how many more minutes before it ends, because i just can’t take anymore of it and I knew it’d still get worst?

All the fucking awards to this episode.

Everyone. Every single one of the cast. Of course I watched this for McAvoy but omg, everyone. So real and so disturbing.

Now I have to watch the rest of ShakespeaRe-Told series but I think I’ll watch them in broad daylight, and with days interval.
