Richard Dreyfuss has high praise for Gary Oldman

12 January 2016 2:30 PM, PST | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

This year marks 50 years since the debut of Tom Stoppard’s “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead” and 25 years since the release of the play’s film adaptation.  Stoppard himself took on the challenge of scripting and directing a film adaptation of his celebrated absurdist comedy that depicts what’s going on “off-stage,” so to speak, during Shakespeare’s “Hamlet.” Then relative unknowns in the U.S., English actors Gary Oldman and Tim Roth starred as the Danish prince’s untimely death-bound friends, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. And for the Player — who, with a twinkle in his eye, schooled us on death and exits and entrances — Stoppard turned to Richard Dreyfuss. Packed with wordplay, super-speedy banter, existential musings, slapstick, and silly anachronisms, “Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead” got its big screen premiere at the 1990 Venice International Film Festival, with a release in U.S. theaters the following February. Today the film is available on Blu-ray for the first time. »
