Subject: New Hamlet
Forgive my ignorance if I've missed the debates on this already, but I
was wondering if anyone would be willing to share any thoughts they had
about the new film adaptation of Hamlet. I go to school in L.A., but I'm
home here in Springfield, IL for the summer where Small Time Crooks is
considered an art film. It looked to me like techno-pop Hamlet, but I
was interested in how Bill Murray came across. At any rate, if anyone
wishes to let me know if the film is at all worth trying to see next
time I'm up in Chicago or even point me in the direction of any
well-written reviews of the movie on the net. Thanks.
