I didn't like the idea that there were no props. No stage sets. No real lighting effects to speak of. No good costume work. This movie reading of Macbeth takes place in a dark room, where the actors say their lines to each other, and sometimes, just by themselves.
That's all fine and good if you already intimately know this play. But even though I have read it countless times, I couldn't even sit through this entire production. I was very disappointed in it, especially after seeing who the actors were. Part of the magick in performing a play onstage is the use of props, lighting, interaction, costuming, etc., to engage the audiences imagination.
This seemed to be to be a read aloud, book-on-tape style production. Yes, the recitation of the lines was well-done. But there was nothing else to compel me to finish it. I can read it myself.
