10 Greatest Shakespeare Film Adaptations


I liked this list on popmatters of The 10 Greatest Shakespeare Film Adaptations of All Time.

I agree with the Baz Luhrmann Romeo and Juliet – as much as that version was reviled by many, it was equally as celebrated by others, I among them. I enjoyed the creative interpretation and the modern take, though John Leguizamo left much to be desired as Tybalt. I was also happy to see the Kenneth Branagh version of Much Ado About Nothing make the list – it’s one of my favourite Shakespeare plays, and the adaptation is brilliant. I love Emma Thompson, and she made a perfect Beatrice. Let’s all just conveniently block out the Keanu Reeves bits, shall we?

There are many on the list I haven’t seen – I have some homework to do.
