Subject:        Best Cinematic Hamlet?

I downloaded the 1980 BBC Hamlet to play and am in the middle of it,
watching dribs and drabs with the Raffel 2003 Yale text for reference. I
am somewhat inclined to think that Hamlet's cautions to the players
should have been read by the person playing Hamlet. But maybe that is
just me in my laid-back mode. Then again ...

So the question is:

Who is the best cinematic Hamlet?

Cheers, S
