Comment: Re: SHK 10.0451 Re: Elizabeth and Shakespeare in Love
This is message from National Changhua U of Education, Taiwan, R. O. C.
Though it's difficult to express English language's tone from my Chinese
way of thinking, I still want to say that "Shakespeare in Love" is a
little disappointing. No, not a little, that's a little too humble. I
went with three of my grad students with a great deal of expectation for
the energy which for quite some time I had been enjoying to think might
have been put into its "behind the scene." The result was that
Elizabeth wasn't bad, John Webster wasn't bad, Christopher wasn't bad,
the rest no good, no good at all. I would have done better. I was a
little surprised that Tom Stoppard was a part of the script writing.
His idea about Shakespeare is probably on his. Well, I shouldn't blame
anybody, because mine is probably only mine.
Oh, If I were given a chance to shoot "Shakespeare in Love, Part II," I
would make him....(the end.)
