I just watched the trailer for Macbeth, a modern redo set in the ganglands of Melbourne. (Why does the idea of Australian gang members not really scare me?) Frankly, the preview reminded me a little of a bad music video from the early 1990s. Even for Macbeth, it seems a bit intense. It comes out in September.
By the way, if you've yet to see MacHomer (one man's stage performance of the entire Shakespeare play using the characters from "The Simpsons,") it's freakin' fantastic. I've seen it twice, and I'd go again. Check it out if it ever travels to anywhere even remotely near your 'hood. -- Amy
