“Something wicked this way comes.”
That could be a warning about a lot of things including the New York Film Festival, which opens this Friday with Joel Coen’s “Macbeth.”
Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand star. A24 releases with Apple. It’s in black and white. It’s also Joel’s first movie without brother Ethan. Shakespeare wrote it. And Mel Gibson isn’t in it. Will it work? How can it not?
