Episode 230: Watch 'The Tragedy of Macbeth' with the Captions On

What’s black and white and now streaming on AppleTV Plus? Why it’s Joel Coen’s solo directorial debut, The Tragedy of Macbeth, starring Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand as a couple with big dreams and no chill…well, maybe they have a little chill in this version? Up for debate. How does this Macbeth measure up in categories like: Bloodlust! Justifying its existence! Cool-looking Birnam Woodl!
