I have the Korean region free import of Macbeth
, which is restored to its original running time of 108 minutes. This is the version I have: http://www.amazon.com/Macbeth-All-Region-Orson-Welles/dp/B000B65ZGM/ref=sr_1_8?s=movies-tv&ie=UTF8&qid=1330201528&sr=1-8
. It's a solid-looking transfer and, as far as I know, the best available option for those of us who have region 1 DVD players (a good R2 release is out there, too). The Korean subtitles are removable, thankfully. The only downside is that the back of the case says it also includes "Road to Glennascaul" with an intro from Peter Bogdanovich, but it's nowhere to be found on the DVD. Anyway, I'd recommend it. On the actual film, this amazon reviewer probably said it best: "Welles' MacBeth is like a crazy 1930s German Expressionist bad acid trip, with Welles in florid ham actor mode, his Irish brogue soaring like a hawk. If you love cinema though, you will love crazy Welles drunken sweaty rampaging through his cheap papier mache caverns with his weird statue of liberty crown way more than you could ever love similar more 'perfect' adaptations like say, Olivier's HAMLET which came out that same year."
