Last night DH and I watched Baz Lurhmann's Romeo + Juliet, which I'd only seen once before, when I was clearly too callow to appreciate it. Anyway I loved it, and it reminded me that when I actually buckle down and watch Shakespeare I really enjoy it.
So. I've seen:
-Al Pacino's The Merchant of Venice, which is STUPENDOUS. I mean, mind-blowingly good.
-The Kenneth Branagh 4-hour Hamlet, which I liked... eventually... it took me a while to get into it, but I'm glad I persevered.
-A cheapo production of Antony and Cleopatra, which I suspect was done by the BBC. Loved the play, but wasn't too taken with the presentation.
Um. That's all I can think of.
I've seen The Taming of the Shrew as a play, and Hamlet again, and maybe a few others - one of the twins/mistaken identities ones, which I realise doesn't narrow it down a lot!
Plus I enjoyed Shakespeare in Love; haven't seen 10 Things I Hate About You or She's the Man, though.
Any recommendations? Are there any good film versions of Macbeth? I've read it, but never seen it in any format.
