awesome thriller
19 September 2002 | by (Tamarac, Florida) – See all my reviews

wow i just saw this last week and i loved it. The cast is amazing, Mary-Louise Parker as a bi-polar Ophelia, Jonathan Penner as an angst ridden hero, Jamey Sheridan as an evil Claudius, Phillip Baker Hall, Maury chaykin, it's so funny and well done. Doesn't talk down to you.

A truly excellent Hamlet adaptation.

The look of the film also deserves mention, it is lush and eerie. Very well directed.
