Sorry, I must protest.  I am fairly certain they never, ever kiss in
this film.  But then, I've only seen it four times in the past few
months.

Hi Jeff -

"Romeo Must Die" is one of the recent proliferations of films based on
Shakespeare's works, but not exactly what might be called an
'adaptation' per se.  Others of note include "10 things I hate about
you" (Shrew); "Forbidden Planet" (Tempest);  "My Own Private Idaho"
(Henry IV); or "West Side Story" (R & J).  There is a fairly exhaustive
list at http://www.imdb.com/Name?Shakespeare,+William .

It is a testament to the enduring nature of the man's works that his
plots and devices are still quite routinely used, even to the point of
almost seeming 'cliche'.

I am new to this mailing list - I have enjoyed the discussion thus far.
