The play's the thing...
The best filmed version of Hamlet I've ever seen (not, I'll concede, that I've seen them all). A very rounded and balanced production, with moments of real comedy that worked for a modern audience as well as the ultimate tragedy of the ending. David Tennant brought a humanity to the part that I've found lacking in other versions - I understood the character and his motivations completely through this portrayal. Beautifully shot in the oppressive black-marbled and mirrored setting of the palace, with some original touches and excellent performances all round. This is the version I could have done with seeing 4 years ago when I was studying Hamlet for A levels.

Wow that criticism must cut deep into the hearts of all fans of Shakespeare, you are obviously a much more talented wordsmith than that dead hack. PS learn to spell pepperoni you muppet.
