Comment: Re: SHK 12.0378 Re: Nunn's Twelfth Night
A different but related issue, that seems to me important. Watching
films in a cinema or on a TV monitor is quite different, as everybody
knows. Nunn's versions of Macbeth and Othello seemed to me exemplary, in
small screen/video terms. Whereas his Twelfth Night (which I loved, with
various rather niggling reservations that aren't worth mentioning) was
branching out, or bigger--wasn't it?
I hope it's not necessary to add that five minutes of Nunn is worth a
century of Branagh...
