Hamlet (US, 1999)

I love this version of a modern day Hamlet with Ethan Hawke as a suitably brooding prince. The mise en scene is superbly done and the use of video technology works very well. Love the ‘To be…’ soliloquy that takes place in the action section of a video store. Heavily cut and I don’t know how it would play if you don’t know the play well; probably brilliantly.
