Lady Macbeth - Secret Agent Judi Dench
Messenger - The Temp
Macbeth - Kenneth Branagh
I'd wondered if anyone questioned who the actor was playing the role of Ross (or was it Lennox?) last week, but here it is foregrounded this week by Chazz and Carlos. Why...? Well, be patient.
Again, not everything can be done from the play, and I'll likely jump forward a little tomorrow. I wanted to give Lady M the benefit of her best scene (though not the best-known; the handwashing is an obvious winner) though I dropped the bits about Macbeth being too full of kindness and satisfaction with complements rather than powered by ambition.
True, out damned spot is more known, but this scene, when you reveals a side more sinister than Cruella DeVille or any of the tramps on (name current prime time medical/legal drama)is her best scene.
