Greetings and Salutations!
On March 18th, I’ll be hosting the second annual “Shakespeare is Rolling in His Grave Video Marathon” at my apartment. Despite the name, not ALL of the videos shown last year sucked. Among them were “Kiss Me Kate,” “Looking for Richard,” and we TRIED to get “Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern are Dead” but it was checked out of Hollywood Video.
What I like to get from my fellow Dopers is some more ideas for this year. Basically, I need videos where someone “reinterprets” a Shakespeare play. For example, someone did “The 15 Minute Hamlet,” which I saw on the Independent Film Channel and found brilliant (does anyone know where I can get it?) and last year’s “Hamlet” starring Ethan Hawke and Kyle MacLachlan would also be perfect for my party. There’s a new movie out called “Scotland, PA” which puts an America-circa-1970s spin on “Macbeth,” but I doubt that’ll be out on video by March 18th.
Does anyone else have some good ideas?
