| What was the plan here?
Simon Schama who is clearly full of himself assembles a handful of actors who re-enact a couple of scenes, some philosophical mumbling, 15 minutes of hearing Simon reciting and then filling up the rest of the time with slow motion shots from a roasting pig, some people in a pub and a chain, YES, a chain! They should have done this as a home video, but not provide this to people who want to get to know Shakespeare. 50 minutes of my life I'll never ever get back.. I'm not saying this documentary should be filled with historic facts, but this seems like a total subjective project of a man who loves to hear himself talk. Better luck next time.
