I would like to ask if anyone out there has seen Polanski's Macbeth?
When Polanski's pregnant wife, Sharon Tate, and several of his friends were all senselessly murdered by members of the Charles Manson cult, he quit his current film project and focused on this. The parallels are startling. This was also filmed between Rosemary's Baby and Chinatown, so he was creatively at the height of his powers. It's the reason why Macbeth is my favorite Shakespeare.
On a different note, I'd like to throw out how much I enjoy Julie Taymor's Titus.
