Orson Welles' Macbeth

Dir: Orson Welles
Starring: Awesome Wells

Unwatchably bad. I started viewing it with the best of intentions, but this was not NB's cup of tea. Massively over-serious, as bleak as Russia in the 1980s, and poorly written (I don't care if yer name is Shakespeare). One good point: Macbeth's wife (Jeanette Nolan) puts in a great performance.

Rating: Piffle
