Branagh’s ‘Hamlet’ A Great Version

By The Spokesman-Review
 

Kenneth Branagh is the modern master of cinema Shakespeare. His versions take a serious, if not overly reverent, attitude to Shakespeare’s texts, and this spirit fits the 1990s perfectly. His “Hamlet” is the full play, some four hours worth, and if you can quibble here and there with Branagh’s interpretations, you nevertheless are likely to walk out convinced that “Hamlet” may be the greatest play in the English language. , DataTimes ILLUSTRATION: Photo
