Pit, I need your help. And no, this is not about my penis. I have to do a 1200 word assignment on Shakespeare's Macbeth. We got a couple of questions which were to incorporate in the text and we had to think of one main question ourselves. I decided on the influence of Macbeth on modern films. The problem is that my knowledge of films is quite lacking.

What films employ:
- a change of personality, from good to evil, and vice versa?
- a woman influencing a man to do bad things?
- blood as a metaphore for guilt?
- dramatic irony? An example from the play is that the witches tell Macbeth he won't be killed by anyone born from a woman. He gets killed by a guy from C-section (because apparantly you're not born from a woman then :confused.
- Predictions?
- parties which are not specifically good or bad?

For the first I thought Scarface could work and for the predictions I thought of the Matrix with the Oracle.

Thanks, and does anyone know if Stellarlegs is still around?

Best line in Macbeth:
"What, you egg! Young fry of treachery!"
Friends, applaud the comedy is over.

I remember in the Chronicles of Riddick, there was this dude's girlfriend or wife who was trying to get him to kill the Necromunger leader so he could be king....or something like that.

Therefore your argument is rubbish, as well as being full of profanity and anti-Semitic. Are you Mel gibson, by any chance?

I don't think that one Shakespeare play influencing another Shakespeare play makes for a good essay.
The will to neither strive nor cry,
The power to feel with others give.
Calm, calm me more; nor let me die
Before I have begun to live.

-Matthew Arnold

Arguments are to be avoided; they are always vulgar and often convincing.

Mystic River, especially the end -- Annabeth IS Lady Macbeth.

Throne of Blood -- Akira Kurosawa's version of Macbeth.
Can't stop the signal.

i dunno if I'm right, but

a change from good to evil: event horizon, doctor weir(sp?) changing from being good to a murderous servant of the ship.

an i can't think of anymore at the moment

I'll give you an update of what I came up with: For the last one I picked Lock, Stock And Two Smoking Barrels. Because all parties in that film have a sense of badness in them. I forgot to add the supernatural in my question, but for that I picked Trainspotting because of the hallucinating (the guidebook I have says hallucinations are supernatural).

I'm still looking into your suggestions.
