Synopsis

A modern, punk adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic. Told irreverently, this film attempts to impact the viewer in the same way theatre-goers were effected in Shakespeare’s time.

Critics reviews

One of the most violent films of the 90s, it doubles as one of the most loyal adaptations of the play in the history of cinema, going back to the first Romeo and Juliet film in 1900—at least in terms of the words that are said, which are dotted with a bit of profanity (and gore and incest and etcetera) here and there.
