    Fast Times at Ridgemont High

    ★★★

    Taking a stroll through the stoner-clad, sex-crazed corridors of 1980s American suburbia is far too easy. Fast Time at Ridgemont High is just one of many features that look to capitulate to the freaks and geeks stuck in dead-end jobs, dealing with heartbreak and the wild ride of graduating.

Macbeth is not just a constant recurrence, but an obvious choice for adaptation. Patrick Stewart, Michael Fassbender and now Denzel Washington have taken on the role in the past decade. To pick a favourite is difficult, for The Tragedy of Macbeth is yet another interpretation of historic work. Washington has admitted he…
