This week in my queue, the greatest love story ever told gets all 90’s, Rome’s “dread general” is master chef and master murderer, and Mel Gibson has some serious issues to work out.
IQG, I hear you’ve seen some good remakes or takes on Romeo and Juliet. Try, Franco Zeffirelli’s Romeo & Juliet (UK/Italy 1968), West Side Story (USA, 1961), and Shakespeare in Love (USA/UK, 1998).
IQG, are there other movies with effed up Shakespeare kings and generals? Try, Kurosawa’s Throne of Blood (Japan, 1957), Othello (USA/UK 1995) and The Last King of Scotland (UK, 2006).
