Pretty great adaptation of "Othello", directed by Tim Blake Nelson and written by Brad Kaaya. It's one of Shakespeare's plays that is easily adapted in *theory*, at least, given today's sensitivities about racial and class difference. The unusually intense domestic setting of the play also helps. So many of Shakespeare's plays were about kings and princes on the world's stage -- kinda hard to realistically adapt that milieu to modern settings, particularly American ones. "Othello" is different in that regard, and thus there's a way forward for a relevant modern update. But what might look doable on paper is much harder to pull off on the finished product on celluloid. For the most part, Nelson and Kaaya made the right decisions.

The first right decision was setting the story in an all-white rich prep school. Mekhi Phifer is the lone black student and the school's basketball hero, eagerly sought after by the NCAA and loved as a second son by Martin Sheen, the coach. Unfortunately for all concerned, Sheen has an actual son, also on the team, Josh Hartnett -- neglected, perhaps treated more harshly than the other kids by Sheen (a common problem when coaches are also dads), and basically seething with jealousy over there in the corner. Guess how things turn out.

Another smart decision by Kaaya was to avoid shoehorning early-modern sensibilities into a late-90s American setting. If you recall the play, Othello has a nasty habit of berating his wife in public and knocking her around a bit. Well, Julia Stiles in the Desdemona role ain't putting up with that. When Phifer unleashes the green-eyed monster, she barks back. And yet, despite updated attitudes, the movie tracks the play with impressive exactitude: there's a "Roderigo" character, a "Brabantio" character, a "Cassio" character, an "Emilia" character, even a "Bianca" character, all of whom are set in motion in much the same manner as in the classic play. And it's all done so organically that even those who know nothing about Shakespeare or "Othello" would accept the story as plausible. The screenwriting is excellent.

However, all that being said, I can't help feeling that the loss of the poetry diminishes the impact of the ending sequence. Without the poetry, everything seems rushed and Nelson fails to stage it clearly (for example, some kid shows up as Hartnett's antagonist without the slightest motivation to do so). The rapid-fire murders threaten to distance us from the proceedings -- not the result you want. Phifer delivers an electric performance, but he's denied poetry. Granted, he speaks in the urban patois of his time and place, but so do all the white kids; therefore, he fails to stand out as a truly unique character, unlike Othello himself, whose speeches make him unforgettable. Another nitpick: I do wish Hartnett as the Iago stand-in was less somnolent. But all in all, this is a sharp and relevant adaptation of a classic of the world's literature. 4 out of 5.

3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas the movie vs. the play 9 de diciembre de 2015

I have always been someone who likes watching something more than reading it. The movie O was not much different from Othello, but it was adapted into a more understandable scenario. The main thing that makes Shakespeare so hard to read, is his use of language. Watching a movie makes things a lot easier to understand, especially when it is set in the 2000s. I liked the seriousness in the text of Othello and it made the severity of the play more extreme. I think the movie O lacked that. Since the movie was set in such a relatable way, with high school students, the movie was easier for me to understand. On the other hand, I think the fact that it was written with such a modernistic approach, made it lose some of the drama of the written play. When Oden is playing in the basketball game and “loses it”, I thought that it was harder to understand why he was acting the way he was in the movie. I also did not think that the relationship between Hugo and his dad mirrored the relationship between Iago and Barbantio in this movie. I think in the text, Iago seemed more jealous and more wanting of Barbantio’s affection, than in the relationship between Hugo and his dad in the movie. The coaches power was lacking and I felt he did not have as much authority in the movie, as his equivalent does in the play. Another thing to mention, is that the racial tension in the play is much more prominent than in the movie. Maybe they had to leave out a lot of the racial comments in the movie for obvious reasons, but I definitely thought that the racial tension was not as strong as it is in the play and it should be highlighted because this is a huge reason of why Othello acts the way he does. Oden, portraying Othello in the movie, is seen as way more popular than Othello is in the play. Oden is seen as the “cool kid” and liked by all of his peers. Othello is seen as more of an outcast in the play, and is rarely seen as a “cool” character. Overall, I do like watching movie interpretations, but it sometimes confuses me on which things are from the movie, and which things are from the original text. I am a visual learner, so I understand things better when I watch a movie or video about the topic, rather than just reading the text. I would say that ultimately I choose watching the movie interpretation, over reading the text, especially with Shakespeare. One must be careful though when choosing a movie to watch, because sometimes the movie’s interpretation can lead the reader astray from what is actually happening in the original text. I did not get too confused with the difference between O and Othello and I think that was largely due to the setting of the movie, versus the play. I would recommend reading the original text and watching the movie adaptation, because I did get a better understanding of what was being told in the text, but do not let yourself blend the two plots together, because they are usually not the exact same.

This movie is intense. It is gripping. I was coming out of my chair in the ending. But the ending is why I gave it 3 stars because I didn't feel like there was enough explanation of why this kid started all the drama. I honestly was so into the movie that when it ended I was baffled about what just happened.
If you like movies about high school kids and the drama they cause and choices they make, perhaps give it a view. I liked it but could only give 3 stars because the main character made extreme choices with very little evidence for why these choices were made. You be the judge.

Wow! Really interesting reframing of Othello. Good acting & pacing kept attention though I was quite familiar with the original Othello. It had some interesting interpretations that made it believable in this modern version. It doesn't always work, but this time it did except that I don't think the violence at the end and the reasons for it translated well. The scheming, fights plausible, but everyone killing each other didn't really wash for me though I know it was not unusual during the original period of history. Good retelling. It was a gamble because they wanted to be true to the original.
3.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas I enjoyed this retelling of the play 24 de enero de 2016

I enjoyed this retelling of the play, mostly because it made the reality that Othello was the only black man in a sea of white people more clear. The metaphor about the black hawk flying above all the white birds is used throughout the film in a very Shakespearean sense. Although we're not reading the play for the Black Shakespeare class that I'm in, I think talking about Othello/Odin's isolation, a connection made between the film and the play, would've led to an excellent discussion. I am excited to see more Shakespeare adaptations in the future.
