    Just curious, but which Shakespearean play-turned-film do you like most?
    I am kinda torn between the first film i saw, which was Marlon Brando in Julius Caesar and more recently, Titus.

    I used to like the Mel Gibson Hamlet, but it hasn't aged well, IMO.

    I love going to the Alabama Shakespeare Festival when they offer Macbeth, but the closest thing on film to that i can enjoy is Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood

    So what's your fave?

    Throne of Blood is amazing. For more Kurosawa/Shakespeare fusion, check out Ran, his take on King Lear.
