After directing such dark classics as Repulsion and Rosemary's Baby, who better than Roman Polanski to take on Macbeth? And what a great job he does. Jon Finch is very convincing in the title role with Francisca Annis also very good as the scheming Lady Macbeth. Praise also for the costumes and the music(performed by The Third Ear Band). The wind swept landscapes are very eerie, you can almost feel the cold and rain. The killings are suitably bloody. Overall Shakespeare would be very proud. Don't be put off that this film is produced by Playboy or Keith Chegwin is in the cast(fortunately he doesn't say much). Also watch out for the chilling ending. Highly Recommended!
