    I masturbated furiously over Claire Danes. Good film too. 7 years 11 months ago

    Eh, the modernization was a bit too much for me. If you want Shakespeare, watch the 1968 version. This one was a bit too zany. I thought it was creative that they modernized it but still kept the language, but it didn't quite work for this movie. Leonardo DiCaprio did a very good job, though. But then again, the 1968 version had great actors as well, and they were better looking. 9 years 1 month ago

    The modern take on Shakespeare's play works, but the two main characters' casting doesn't. Or perhaps their motivations cannot be sold in a modern context. That is the fatal flaw that sinks this otherwise interesting and appealing experiment. 1 year 6 months ago
