I've already seen this twice, TG.

It's great.

Seen it.

Have you seen Dean Spanley?
That guy - 2016-10-22
Is it a movie called "My Talks with Dean Spanley"?

TeenerTot - 2016-10-22
Yes!

That guy - 2016-10-22
I haven't. Are you bringing it up just by your own mental association, or is there an overt connection between the films?

TeenerTot - 2016-10-22
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.
