Fassbender Portrayed An Eccentric ‘Macbeth’

The sullen and impulsive portrayal of the classical tragic hero “Macbeth” by Michael Fassbender stands as one of the best in these kinds. While we talk about the adaption on screen; here come legendary names like Akira Kurosawa, Roman Polanski, or Orson Welles. Justin Kerzel can easily match up to the inconceivable cinematic stalwarts with his latest adaption of “Macbeth”.

Michael Fassbender’s extraordinary appeal has made him the celebrated protagonist full of human potentials that provoke the character to commit the errors and at the same time welcome a retaliated dénouement.


In a recent interview, Kerzel and Fassbender have elaborated about the cinematic sojourn that is all set to hit theaters on December 4 in the US with a limited release, whereas it will open much earlier in the UK, Ireland, Australia, and New Zealand, with those dates set for this week.

The Irish-German actor highlights his perspective and the devotion he has endured to justify the classic rendition of the Shakespearean drama. He revealed the hurdles, he encountered while essaying the complex psychological uproar of “Macbeth”. He informed, every single shot urges an uplifted acting skill than the previous and the constant mental implementation leaves him tired at times. No wonder his seething performance has received overwhelming criticism from diverse sorts of platform, since The Weinstein Company has debuted the film at the Cannes film festival.

The suave actor admitted  that Kerzel encouraged him to push all boundaries and to get under the skin of the character. Fassbender has started living the trauma and scowl of Macbeth.

Notably, Marion Cotillard won raves from critics as she empathetically brings out the grief and gloominess that makes her effort triumphant as Lady Macbeth. We listen to her as she unveils her perspective in that same interview.

Kerzel, being true to its original form, has folded the intrigue with violence and melancholic that utters a hollowness of power which is achieved in terms of innocent blood. He keeps the sublime picturesque unhampered with the soliloquies that Macbeth mutters in stream-of-consciousness. Night and darkness have been used as abstract backdrop that sets a perfect arena for Macbeth and his devious and ruthless wife Lady Macbeth to expose their brusque anatomy and ravaging treachery.
