I have written a review which speaks not of Coriolanus, but of MAD MAX
as well as THE RISE AND FALL OF THE ROMAN EMPIRE as antecedent to
GLADIATOR. The coriolanus parallel is excellent, of course. Review is
called MAD MAXIMUS, part of a piece on manly mission movies which have
prevailed at the box office this summer.

Piece will appear in PSYCHIATRIC TIMES in two months. Those desiring a
copy earlier can send snail mail addresses to this posting.

Thanks. HR Greenberg

Hi, I haven't seen the movie but judging by the reviews it sounds like a
reversal of Coriolanus.

Not a bad idea.

Much more difficult to prove a connection in such a case but worthwhile.

I've always thought Coriolanus to be a very good play and under-rated.

Hope you get some results and let SHAKSPER know.
