Subject:        Henry V, Hamlet, and Kingdom of Heaven

An Epic Bloodletting Empowered by Faith
By MANOHLA DARGIS

Published: May 6, 2005 NY Times

"In this context, Balian initially comes across as a kind of ecumenical
Hamlet, pondering not death but belief, and then, when forced to protect
Jerusalem against Muslim troops, a proto Henry V who rallies the
faithful with yet another iteration of the St. Crispin Day's speech."
