CLIFF'S NOTES FOR THE FAST-FOOD SET
SCOTLAND, PA (2002) ***1/2 James LeGros, Maura Tierney, Christopher Walken, Kevin Corrigan, James Rebhorn, Thomas Guiry, Geoff Dunsworth, Andy Dick, Amy Smart, Timothy Speed Levitch. Fun, funny and skeweringly clever concoction/re-imagination of Shakespeare's "MacBeth" transplanting the classic play into the titular hamlet locale circa 1975 centering around a fast-food joint with some duplicitous characters (Le Gros and Tierney as Mr. & Mrs. McBeth here) attempting to dethrone its owner (burger king Rebhorn) thru murder until local police Lt. McDuff (wryly dry Walken) investigates the sordid affair. Highly imaginative with a game cast (including Dick, Smart & Levitch as a trio of hippies standing in as the Greek chorus witches here), terrific costumes by David Robinson and FM rock nuggets underscoring the chicanery at hand. A real hoot for purists and non-initiated in the Bard alike. (Dir: Billy Morrissette – trivia note: Ms. Tierney's real-life better half)
