Image from the film Macbeth.
Scottish Version
A rushed production on a shoestring budget, Orson Welles takes necessary liberties with the Scottish play, beefing up and cutting down portions as he saw fit. While this caused complaints from critics at the time, the result today is a fascinating example of adaptation and a lesson in handling a classic. Spurred by Welles’s performance as the title character and the expressionistic, low-budget set pieces, Welles again investigates the corroding influence of power on the psyche of men.
