- “A raw, lucid retelling, rendered spellbinding by its enveloping stylized design and its masterful black-and-white visuals, evoking the chiaroscuro textures of Carl Theodor Dreyer.” David Rooney: The Hollywood Reporter
- “There is no comfort in Coen’s vision, but his rigor — and Washington’s vigor — are never less than exhilarating.” A. O. Scott: The New York Times
- “‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’ is an immaculate vision: coldly efficient, aesthetically faultless, splendidly acted. I do wish it had a bit more blood in it.” Justin Chang: Los Angeles Times
