Movie Preview: Denzel comes to Dunsinane, “Macbeth” for Christmas

This minimalist, haunted looking take on “the Scottish play” resembles the Orson Welles 1940s version.

Knowing the Coen Brothers (Joel directed and adapted it), no doubt they/he willdeny ever seeing that “Macbeth” before taking on “The Tragedy of Macbeth” for Apple (in theaters Dec. 25, streaming just after), just as they denied taking a look at the original “True Grit.”

Sure.

A great role for the esteemed Mr. Washington, a grand villainous opportunity for Frances McDormand as well.
