Film Review: ‘Hamlet’

Film Review: ‘Hamlet’
Shakespeare is stripped to essentials in Bruce Ramsay’s spare and streamlined “Hamlet,” a modestly inventive but curiously bloodless version of the Bard’s timeless tragedy. Ramsay, a Canadian-born actor making his feature directing debut, gives a lead performance as the indecisive Dane that seldom rises above the level of a good try, and never really offers a good reason for resetting the narrative in post-wwii England. Still, academics and Shakespeareans may be intrigued (and perhaps amused) by audacious decisions Ramsay has made while trimming and compressing the original text. That might help spur biz in home-screen venues.

In the “Hamlet” according to Ramsay, the title character returns home to a curiously underpopulated palace — more likely an embassy, given that this Elsinore is clearly situated in ’40s London — and moodily indicates his displeasure over the hasty marriage of his recently widowed mom, Gertrude (Gillian Barber), to his too-convivial Uncle Claudius

The hook with this episode is to reveal what some ghosts do in their afterlife. Some move on, and others do not because of unfinished business. There are even those who cannot do either—they are often being manipulated by a powerful force. These souls are trapped in purgatory. If this subtext is sounding familiar, perhaps the writing team of Eugenie Ross-Leming and Brad Buckner are building on the lore of what
