Oh, it's about something, all right
12 April 2002 | by (Haddonfield, NJ) – See all my reviews

"Much Ado About Something" is a fascinating documentary about the debate over who actually wrote Shakespeare's plays and sonnets. Australian Michael Rubbo treats his film like a mystery, feeding us clues and expounding on the various theories that come to light over the course of his investigation. "Much Ado" is also frequently quite funny, as it seems just about everybody involved in the debate is rather on the eccentric side, with those making the case for Christopher Marlowe the most adamant about it.

If you've ever harbored doubts that a largely unschooled Elizabethan actor-manager could have written many of the greatest works in the English language, then this film is for you.
