King Lear

Korol Lir

Directed by Grigori Kozintsev
Soviet Union, 1971


One of William Shakespeare’s darkest works, King Lear receives vivid expression in this esteemed Russian rendition. The film’s use of widescreen and its stark black-and-white cinematography provide an expansive cinematic dimension to the tragedy.
