In response to the question about whether there are convincing and
powerful versions of Shakespeare plays on film or video, let me cite
two that seem pretty wonderful to me: Moshinsky's *All's Well* in the BBC
Shakespeare and Janet Suzman's video version of *Othello* at the Market
Theatre in Johannesburg.  Moshinsky's showed me that *All's Well* is
probably the Shakespearean comedy closest to my sentiments about social
flexibility and distributions of energy and aggressivity across gender
lines -- for me, it's a play tailored to the interests of our moment, and
I certainly didn't think that before I viewed that video.
