A really fine introduction to the Bard. It could've been a bit clearer though. Now it's just a mess of people showing up and no help to understand who is who. Unless they tried to imitate the play they're adapting.
one star for the backwards snapback and greasy hair i like that
Pacino's so confident that he rains spittle while reciting lines.
Required for class, this was awesome in form but I find Pacino pretentious and slightly annoying
All my respect to Al Pacino's effort. His heart can be find everywhere in this movie, but this picture badly suffers from a lack of "direction".
I love how this documentary was shot. Pacino does an excellent job getting his point across without being pretentious or dry.
