Ross regaining crown scene. This scene, even when tied with the preceding scene in the castle of Macduff, shows Ross as being a double sided character. When Polanski first suggested that Ross was the "mysterious" third assassin, we're lead to believe that Ross is similar to a ideal hand man for Macbeth. In the film, if Ross arrives at the area of Banquo's murder you'll be able to see that he's the "strange" murderer. This being that he's the highest position and most noteworthy title of the three men sent to perform the action of silencing Banquo. After Banquo's death Ross seems like Macbeth's messenger of departure (in the movie). Ross is later connected into the deaths of the 2 murderers, along with the full Macduff clan- both teams being looked severely upon by Macbeth. Near the last conflict between the Scottish and British military, we see the king carrying the necklace that signifies Thaneship which in this case is to the territory of Cawdor. This is exactly the identical necklace which Duncan introduced to Macbeth who- slightly carelessly- gave to another individual instead of Ross (one of around 5 men standing in the front of the king). As soon as the King and another guys exit, Ross is left standing there and seems angry, probably due to all his dirty work as a henchman being fruitless to the king. This anger takes on to the next scene in which the English military is preparing for conflict, Ross rides up to these (after defecting from Scotland). At first he reports to Macduff that his loved ones and people (as he watched them last) haven't been penalized by the king, and then almost as a second thought, he tells him that his whole castle and all inside it was destroyed. Ross addressed Macbeth as a "tyrant"- making it clear that he was not satisfied with Macbeth anymore. Which brings me back into the the "Retrieving crown.
