Synopsis by Clarke Fountain

In this arthouse satirical interpretation of the famous Shakespeare play, a thug named Macbeth starts a gang war at the instigation of his ultimately suicidal girlfriend. As the mobsters become increasingly paranoid, their use of lines quoted from Shakespeare's plays becomes especially silly, as it is (apparently) intended to. In addition to being a wry hommage to plays by the Bard of Avalon, this film does double duty as a spoof of film noir.
