There are a few more titles I thought might be of general interest.

The Taming of the Screw (dir. Jim Powers, 1997).  An update of
Shakespeare's comedy.

A Midsummer Night's Bondage (1993).  This is apparently unavailable
(haven't seen it).

Romeo and Julian (1993), a "gay romantic musical" based on Romeo and
Juliet.  Won three awards from AVN in 1994.

There are four Shakespeare allusions in Van Sant's latest film

to HV,
to Romeo,
to Shakespeare,
and in the first song over the credits at the end, The Comedy of Errors.
