New 4K digital restored edition of Roman Polanski's "Macbeth" out soon.


A brand new 4K digital restored edition of Roman Polanski's "Macbeth", approved by the film ditector, will be published on next 23 September 2014 in DVD and Blu-Ray versions by The Criterion Collection (
With a brand new cover designed by Sarah Habibi, this edition will show these  very interesting materials:

"Toil and Trouble: Making “Macbeth": a new documentary featuring interviews with Polanski, producer Andrew Braunsberg, assistant executive producer Victor Lownes, and actors Francesca Annis and Martin Shaw;
"Polanski Meets Macbeth", a 1971 documentary by Frank Simon featuring rare footage of the film’s cast and crew at work;
Interview with coscreenwriter Kenneth Tynan from a 1971 episode of "The Dick Cavett Show";
Two Macbeths”, a segment from a 1972 episode of the British television series "Aquarius" featuring Polanski and theater director Peter Coe;
Original trailers;
An essay by critic Terrence Rafferty

Even if with very high prices ($ 29.95 the DVD, $ 39.95 the Blu-Ray), this rendition seems the so-called definitive one, maybe with some things related to the Third Ear Band...
