"Good night sweet prince, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."

Hamlet is a modern Shakespeare play adaptation that I found to be both visually stunning, but also a compelling and engaging film. Complete with a stellar cast, this is a rare film that shouldn't me missed.

I can't call myself a huge fan of some other films based on one of Shakespeare's plays, b... read more

I'm not at all a fan of those modern Shakespeare adaptations. I have seen at least 3 of them (this flick, 'O', Romeo+Juliet) and none of them has convinced me. However, there are still some good things about this version. First of all, the cast is rather amazing (Ethan Hawke, Kyle MacLachlan, Sam Shepard, Bill Murray, Liev Schreiber, Julia Stiles, Steve Zahn, Jeffrey Wright, Casey Affleck) and the... read more

Movie Diary - 2013 (500 movies items)

"23.2.2013 Tämän sovituksen Hamlet on pipopäinen elokuvaopiskelijahipsteri, joka filosofoi viilettäessään pitkin New Yorkin katuja. Ethan Hawke on pääosassa ok. Erityisen muistettavia roolisuorituksia tässä ei ole, vaikka miehitys on mielenkiintoinen, esimerkiksi Kyle MacLachlan Claudiuksena ja Bill Murray Poloniuksena. Liev Schreiber uhkuu vihaa loppupuolella Laerteksena. Enemmän olen pitänyt Luhrmannin Romeosta ja Juliasta, sekä hiljattain ilmestyneestä Fiennesin Coriolanuksest"

I think the main issue is that I was rather bored the whole thing. Anyway, if you're big Shakespeare fan, it is still worth a look.

"based on William Shakespeare's Hamlet set in modern Manhattan. In this version of Hamlet, Claudius becomes King and CEO of "Denmark Corporation", having taken over the firm by killing his brother, Hamlet's father. The film keeps the Shakespearean dialogue but presents a modern setting, with technology such as video cameras, Polaroid cameras, and surveillance bugs."

Modern Shakespeare (9 movies items)

"Ethan Hawke plays Hamlet in this semi-successful attempt to reinterpret the play. Hamlet's monologues in the play come across as deranged ramblings of a young man in shock in the movie. The movie lacks impact and Ethan Hawke lacks presence."

“"Good night sweet prince, and flights of angels sing thee to thy rest."

I can't call myself a huge fan of some other films based on one of Shakespeare's plays, but Hamlet has proved as an exception. Director Michael Almereyda has done as Baz Luhrmann did for Romeo + Juliet, in that he has created a very contemporary vision for Hamlet, being set in the modern era. In this case, the film is set in New York City, in 2000. This version stays true to the original play and manages to fit everything effectively within less than two hours (the original play taking four hours” read more
