The words belong to Mr. Shakespeare. All else in this Macbeth is the pleasurably fevered invention of brash Australian director Geoffrey Wright, who turned Russell Crowe into a star 15 years ago with Romper Stomper and who now turns a Scottish revenge play into a sexy, bloody gangland showdown set in present-day Melbourne. For kinks, the three witches are naughty rave-teens. And for kicks, the cast, led by Sam Worthington (Somersault), is consciously chosen for its beauty, each player a brawling rock star in his own mind. B+
