Hamlet (1996) Kenneth Branagh

If you have not seen this movie, you should, when released it was only available in vhs, now it is available in dvd and blu ray.

This is a complete unabridged version, none of the play is left out. The amount of preparation, the careful interpretation, the tongue in cheek that is Shakespeare is all here.

Even if you dont like plays, even if you hate Shakespeare, you should watch this. Be warned though, this is an intelligent interpretation, none of that "mel gibson hamlet is crazy" here, for Branagh's hamlet the wind is always southerly.

    The Graveyard ("Alas Poor Yorrick") scene with Billy Crystal in this version was priceless. it's always been one of my favorite interpretations.
