Other details

During the press screening at NYFF, director Joel Coen said:

“As a filmmaker you want your audience to see your film on the best, biggest screen possible. The worst nightmare as a filmmaker is that someone watched your film on an airplane.”

“I’m not going to bust on them now because they’ve become very successful and are overtaking the market. It’s the reason I’m able to do this stuff. I have mixed feelings about [streaming] obviously. You want people to see it on a big screen. But the other part of it is that’s been part of the history of our movies since the very beginning.”


The footage for ‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’ features a monochrome effect with a steady beat that adds an unusual feel. The dark gloom accompanied by the engulfing silence enhances the sense of foreboding, keeping us thoroughly engaged.
