“Joel Coen’s triumphant film of Shakespeare’s tragedy astounds on every level, with Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, two acting titans, playing an aging couple taking their last shot at murderous ambition. You can’t take your eyes off them.” – Peter Travers, ABC News
“Furious and fleet, emotional and elemental, Joel Coen’s stripped-down take on the Scottish play instantly secures its place among the most audacious modern screen adaptations of Shakespeare.” – David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter
“Combines the sparseness of a late career work with the back-to-basics energy of a veteran filmmaker starting a new chapter of their career, and returning to the primordial ooze that inspired it in the first place.” – David Ehrlich, IndieWire
