Movie Reviews (part 9) (50 movies items)

" The Ups: Atmospheric and different take on "Macbeth" that manage to be more riveting and interesting than the original play. An excellent Mifune in the main role. One of the greatest death scenes in movie history. The Downs: A little too theatrical to my liking. The witch is more comical than scary. "
