Macbeth (Fassbender)

The story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a truthful reimagining of what wartime must have really been like for one of Shakespeare's most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition set in war-torn 11th Century Scotland. Everything here is so perfectly in tune with itself  the bruised and smouldering landscapes, the uniformly outstanding supporting cast, which includes Paddy Considine as a stolid, wary Banquo and Sean Harris as a wraithlike Macduff  that you might expect the film to feel a little too neatly self-contained and vacuum-packed, like Game of Thrones with an arts degree. In fact its the opposite: raw, visceral and contagious. Its poetry gets in your bloodstream  The Telegraph  Robbie Collin
