"Ricardo III,² el drama shakesperiano que medita sobre el poder, la lujuria y la traición, queda ahora al alcance de un público mucho más amplio gracias a este film, excelentemente acogido por la crítica, que marca el debut como director del oscarizado actor Al Pacino (1992, Mejor Actor, Esencia de mujer).
Para su primera película, Pacino reunió un reparto estelar compuesto por Winona Ryder, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin y Aidan Quinn. La cámara sigue a los actores y al equipo durante los ensayos de la obra, curioseando tras las bambalinas para revelar las entrañas del proceso creativo y de montaje que subyace a toda producción teatral. Looking For Richard es "enormemente divertida" (Rolling Stone), y cuenta con intervenciones de Sir John Gielgud, Kenneth Branagh, Vanessa Redgrave, James Earl Jones y Kevin Kline.


Versión Cinematográfica Del Drama De William Shakespeare Ricardo Iii, Un Análisis Sobre El Poder, La Lujuria Y La Traición.

This one's in a rare genre -- the filmed "essay" along the lines of Welles' "F for Fake". It has a subject, "Richard III" by Shakespeare, but it also rambles down whatever roads the director is plodding at any given moment. Al Pacino is interested in any number of things: imparting his love for Shakespeare to American audiences; the opinions of John Q. Public on the street; the advice and experience of luminaries across the pond like Derek Jacobi, Kenneth Branagh, Kenneth Tynan, Vanessa Redgrave, John Gielgud; fretting about whether American actors (and, by implication, audiences) are adequate enough to perform and experience classical theater. I think Pacino worries a little too much about that last point. Shakespeare is as much of a cottage industry in America as it is in the UK. Shakespeare has been in American blood since the colonial era, which is not surprising given that the country was mainly settled by English folks, at least at the beginning. In the 19th century, Americans certainly didn't feel like they were too inferior to perform or understand Shakespeare. In that era, there were many American actors who became superstars (John Wilkes Booth, anyone?) not just here, but abroad as well. Any sense of "inferiority" must've started in the early 20th century -- perhaps the advent of film made our accents sound silly when speaking Shakespeare in such a mass-media context.

In any case, it's pointed out that "Richard III" is Shakespeare's most popular play, and for good reason: the language is comparatively simple, the similes are straightforward, and the motivations are clear. It's one of Shakespeare's "apprentice" works, written early in his career. I get the feeling that a more difficult play from the later periods, like "Macbeth" or "The Tempest", might have shown everyone up, including Pacino himself -- who, by the way, does a fair job of getting across the content of the poetry while speaking it, but at the expense of proper line-reading. So who knows, maybe Americans are right to feel a little inferior when it comes to Shakespeare, after all.

Meanwhile, Pacino goes on with making a quasi-movie out of the play itself, bringing on board some good New York stage actors and also some good Hollywood actors, like Kevin Spacey and Alec Baldwin. A scene in costume is filmed, and then "explained" with voice-over narration or by a cut to Pacino and his producers sitting around a table, trying to figure it out. We see the actors in rehearsal, "working it out" in the Method way, which apparently means that rather than rehearse the lines as written, they must speak the lines in "regular" language first in order to get a handle on the meaning. Actors, I swear.

Beyond all that, we follow Pacino to cocktail parties filled with pretentious arty types, Shakespeare's birthplace, and the streets of New York. Not surprisingly, people on the street manage to go through their lives without giving a second thought to William Shakespeare. And yet the wisest commentator of all is a homeless guy with one tooth in his head, who suggests that Shakespeare is important because he can teach people to have feelings, to be in touch with their humanity, through the power of his poetry. (This guy and Harold Bloom would have much to talk about.) After dropping some pearls of wisdom on camera, he moves off to ask someone for spare change. One of those poignant movie-moments.

Unless you have PAL don't buy. I watched this documentary on VHS a couple decades ago and loved it. I bought it with one click from the cheapest source MovieMars. They basically said it's your problem, you should have noticed the warning. When you buy with one click you don't see the warning or pay much attention so my bad. Everyone should be more careful than I was.

This film is entertaining while it takes you through the story and characters within the actual play. It's easy to follow and incredibly well done. My husband and I show it to our classes every time we teach Shakespeare. It's well worth the watch.

5.0 de un máximo de 5 estrellas Enjoyable overview of the play 24 de diciembre de 2001

An extremely enjoyable video. Pacino shows how shakespeare (specifically Richard III) can be fun and understandable. The video is a journey into an attempt to make the play comprehensible,and why most people do not enjoy or understand it. Shakespeare's plays are not written for our current common ear; that must be acknowledged. Yes, the film does not parse Richard III totally. Clearly is not meant to. Instead it shows how to get to the meat of the story and have fun doing it. All the actors...All seem to be having fun with the effort and the fun is contagious. Ignore the shakespeare snobs and their nose raising reviews. They express Pretentious, Egocentric Nonsense.

Great movie-wasn't for me, it was for my son's English teacher. He took them to see Richard III on a field trip.
