Shakespeare rides again for this Movie-Go-Round New to Two, with Brett's pick, The Tragedy of Macbeth (2021). Director and screenwriter Joel Coen went brotherless for this film adaptation of the Scottish play that is nearly as bare-bones as one can get. We talk about the strong performances, the stark black-and-white cinematography, the sometimes surprising casting, David says "yeet" in a surprising context, and Nicole says some variation of "pared down" a lot (do not use it as a drinking game; you will die).
Next episode, we'll be asking "Can We Just Talk About..." 2008's Speed Racer.
