To this list I would add a less-seen movie, SCOTLAND PA, a remake of MacBeth set in PA, in a burger franchise, starring Maura Tierney as Lady MacBeth, James Le Gros, and Chris Walken.., MacBeth makes a better comedy than tragedy. I mention this because I think you might appreciate it, not because it suits the thread. Did you ever see a little movie called SCOTLAND PA? It's MacBeth done as a dark comedy, set in 1970s Pennsylvania in and around a fast food franchise (Big Macs)... Walken as MacDuff, James LeGros as MacBeth, and Maura Tierney is great as Lady McBeth. I heard about it late last year. Roth said he'd always wanted to see MacB played by a real person, and said it was the works. I imagine Roth has a hand in the screenplay. I can't even remember the music in SCOTLAND PA. But after seeing it, I began to wonder if all Shakespeare's plays weren't really comedies, cause it seemed that MacBeth certainly played more easily as one. 'Course that's a tendency of mine -- I'm already convinced that MOBY DICK and a good bit of western lit that's taken very seriously is actually wildly comic. Yep. Ray Winstone's the shit. I hear that he's doing MacBeth as a film with Tim Roth directing.
