Felt Like a Classical Tune
27 July 2004 | by (Edinboro, PA) – See all my reviews

I had the opportunity to watch Shakespeare's Dilemma with the makers and the casting members during its premiere. I must admit it was a new experience for me.

I remember feeling that the movie reminded me of a classical tune -- a slow beginning, increase of speed in the "body" and an ending that would make you long for more. I felt like it was more of a satire than anything else. I also felt like the writer and the director portrayed a very good and humorous picture of how real life office and internal politics go, and how somehow everything has a technical aspect to it nowadays. All of these were very well "wrapped" in a Shakespearean era theme.

The main thing I remember not liking about the movie was that the editing of the movie (individual takes and clips) seemed pretty obvious. But I am sure the enthusiasm by far covers for it.

I am looking forward to the premiere of the new movie.

I would recommend anyone who are willing to "taste" different things to check this movie out. I know you will feel refreshed after watching it.
