When shall we three meet again?

The Actors' Shakespeare Project all-female Macbeth (now playing through November 18; review coming shortly) put me in mind of other memorable productions. Perhaps the best on film is Roman Polanski's 1971 version - distinguised, yes, by unfortunately flat acting, but also by superb mise en scène. The witches' opening appearance (above) sets the tone for the whole movie.
