Welcome to Lovers of Shakespeare

To be or not to be, that is the question;
Whether 'tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing, end them. To die, to sleep;
No more; and by a sleep to say we end
The heart-ache and the thousand natural shocks
That flesh is heir to — 'tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wish'd. To die, to sleep;
To sleep, perchance to dream. Ay, there's the rub,
For in that sleep of death what dreams may come,
When we have shuffled off this mortal coil,
Must give us pause.

Some of the BBC complete test series are worthwhile. "Lear" - Michael Horden: "The Shrew" - John Cleese "Comedy of Errors" - Roger Daltrey (Yeeeeaaaaaah!) "Hamlet" - Derek Jacobi/Patrick Stewart. Al Pacino gets my vote as the best Shylock. Non Bard: "Lion in Winter" with Stewart/Close. A TV version made for Hallmark and a superlative production.

Kline directed the 1990 version and starred in it if I'm not mistaken...He was also in Midsummer which I love!!!

I saw it years ago and thought it was fairly good. I remember Mel being better than I expected.

I have seen it, long ago, and remember it being okay. I will have to watch it again to give any sort of assessment. It must not have been great or I would have remembered!

I have most of Greenaways's films _ Drowning by Numbers, Belly of an Architect, Zoo, Cook & the gang. He's excellent

*capture*-my spelling is off today (as my son keeps nudging me for kisses) :)

That's funny! It was awful, although it did captue a lot of what we discussed in my Great Books class (that I do not instruct).
Comment by Leslee Love on December 19, 2008 at 3:56pm
...'midsummer's' rather...my apologies!

He's brilliant, and yes absolutely beautiful!
I love Cate Blanchett, she does a great portrayal of the virgin queen. Was Helen Mirren in Misummer's? I also, like Dame Judi Dench. She plays Lady Macbeth in the version with Ian Mckellan (who is fantastic as well).

I freakin' love Shakespeare in Love! It is not an accurate portrayal (you are right Dallas) of Shakes but it is beautiful! I have just about every word memorized...who doesn't love some Joseph Fiennes? (and Colin Firth) Thanks for the input guys!
