Any response to a Shakespearean production, be it on stage, film, or television, is necessarily subjective, partaking of elements of which even the reviewer is not conscious. In my opinion, Roman Polanski's Macbeth is a multimillion-dollar disaster, mitigated occasionally by the things film can do that the stage cannot duplicate.
