I've already seen this twice, TG.

It's great.
Seen it.

Have you seen Dean Spanley?

Is it a movie called "My Talks with Dean Spanley"?

That guy
I haven't. Are you bringing it up just by your own mental association, or is there an overt connection between the films?

No real connection other than in my head. It and Coriolanus were two films I was recommending to my family.

I really dont like the Shakespearian dialogue in these sort of films. Its annoying cus I'd probably really like them otherwise.
Eg. I love Kurosawas films that he adapted from Shakespeare but used modern (not bizarre sounding) dialogue
My favorite Shakespeare to film movie is still Titus. Anthony hopkins made a visceral and stunning performance with what is arguably shakespeare's "worst" play, seeing as it was one of his earlier works.
There's also a very neat behind-the-scenes where they do some group reads and act out a few scenes and you can tell they're having a blast with it.

Cool, I'll go look for that BTS thing.

Titus is certainly not his worst, just in his bottom half. There are a few just unbearable plays that beat Titus for the race to the bottom. The Henry VI plays are a snore, Merry Wives of Windsor is awful, so are Henry VIII, King John and Pericles. None of those really get better than 1 good scene or speech.

Titus is better-written than those. It's just William Shakespeare's Saw, so it's not diving off the 30m platform and doing a quintuple twist, by any means. Its sights are aimed lower.It is his worst tragedy, by far. But the categories there are a little bit artificial.

The thing I like about this movie is that it's a damn good film version of a good play that did not have more than a competent tv version before this.
