As Groucho Marx once said, "This may sound ridiculous.  But don't be
fooled: it really is ridiculous." --Charles Weinstein

I must admit I never had Charles Weinstein down as a Marxist. So he's
not Terry Hawkes but... Terry EAGLETON...? Or should we "keep
looking"...?

Would you prefer he adopt an affected English accent?  He used his own
speech and you ridicule him? Your potshots are really starting to offend
me Charles. Why don't you offer something of positive value to this
service Charles? Or is there nothing positive for you to contribute?

O.K., I'll take a turn at the post. Is Kenneth Branaugh's or Mel
Gibson's the better Hamlet? Which is the better screen Hamlet? Point by
point if you are able without an infarction, please Sir.

All the best,
R.A. Cantrell

Well, I really must take exception to Charles' decrying of Al Pacino.
"Looking for Richard" is my favourite Shakespeare film.  It was messy,
patchy and incomplete - but it had an honest and undaunted attitude to
the text.  Perhaps Charles is embarrassed by the New York accent - and
clearly Pacino seems wedded to it - but I liked him and it.  And a lot
better that some of the podgy old English public school dropouts with
voices like speech synthesisers that Charles seems to be so in love
with.
