Popcorn Culture -  Review: The Tragedy of Macbeth

The Tragedy of Macbeth has all the makings of a film that's going to dominate at this year's Oscars. It's produced by A24 and is hosted by Apple TV+, the most prestigious of the streaming platforms. It's a black and white film shot in the unorthodox 1.37:1 aspect ratio, just to keep things classy. It's directed by Joel Coen and stars Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, three Hollywood heavyweights who are no strangers to the Academy Awards. And it's based on Shakespeare for good measure. In this episode, we check out a film that's already getting rave reviews to discuss if all the hype is warranted and if we feel the same way.
