The Fifteen Minute Hamlet (1995)
Brilliant writing and acting!
You know how there are a few films or books you got to experience once but they've stayed with you ever after? This is one of those jewels.
Absolutely brilliant writing by the ever esteem-able Tom Stoppard, and the acting by the always solid Austin Pendleton merely enhances the piece.
This was my first exposure to Philip Seymour Hall, and his work herein really made me sit up and pay attention.
The entire premise is simply condensing Shakespeare's Hamlet into fifteen minutes. The first attempt had me rolling, but the second round of condensing Hamlet even further was so brilliant I just sat there with my mouth open.
This is SO worth releasing on DVD....pllllleeeeeaaaassseee?
