Macbeth

Synopsis
A made-for-television film. A version of Macbeth. The film is comprised of two uninterrupted shots, the first a 5-minute segment preceding the credits and the remainder a 67-minute segment shot largely in close-ups. The action takes place in the foreground as the perpetually moving camera reveals the machinations of the characters lit only by the flames of torches.
