Today Criterion announced that a brand spanking new Bluray/DVD of Roman Polanski‘s Macbeth (4K digital restoration with a recently-produced making-of doc featuring an interview with Polanski) will street on 9.23.14. I’ve seen my share of Macbeths (including the notoriously panned 1980 Peter O’Toole stage version at the Old Vic), and the Polanski is my hands-down, all-time fave. The Criterion disc will precede Justin Kurzel‘s somewhat dumbed-down Macbeth, a Weinstein Co. release costarring Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard, by at least a couple of months. The IMDB says it may open in November or December.
“Therein, the patient must minister to himself.”
