Hi! I've been around Spark for a while, but have been getting really serious lately, and just found this team.... then I found this thread. I bought Tennant's Hamlet, and I think it's great. Really superb. It's the first time Hamlet himself has ever made any sense to me, and I think I've seen most of the "great" performances. The guy nearly always comes off as self-absorbed and clueless and ambivalent about life and everyone in it. It's really hard to care what happens to him.
Tennant's Hamlet is driven, tortured, and coming off the rails, but you can see how he gets from one level of despair to the next. By the end of the duel scene, I was heartbroken.

Olivier never made me cry.

If you always do what you've always done, you'll always get what you always got.

"Trick the daughter into watching some Shakespeare." Love it. Have to get to them while they're young.

Netflix does have it, but only on disc. Enjoy.

Thanks,

I'll have to see if it's on Netflix. What a great way to trick the daughter into watching some Shakespear, She loves David.

Sort of. If we're playing 6 degrees of the Doctor. And really we only need two.

Has anyone seen the 2009 BBC version of Hamlet with DT as the titular character? Love, love, love it.

To be fair, I love DT is just about everything. But he brings a very "doctory" feel to the role that I haven't seen before. Hamlet is always somewhat...let's call it manic. But DT plays it off as a driving need to know and to understand that I haven't seen many actors be able to pull off as successfully.

If you have 3 free hours, I highly recommend it.
