Whoever came up with making a Shakespearean play look like that should have a standing ovation for hours :D
I only wish more of Shakespeare's work would be interpreted in this creative way .. the production partnership in here by BBC and Amazon and directing by the talented "king Lear" expert Richard Eyre did one spectacular job .. yet .. i still have no idea who came up by this "modernizing" of the Shakespearean work like this .. it shins with originality and thrill.
The madness, tension and stress presented by Anthony Hopkins is indescribable ,, felt like he's on the stage of a theater of his imagination he owned each and every line ... i mean even though i needed English subtitles for the movie just to keep up .. still he was amazing .. the whole cast were .. and what a cast ... The kingdom's finest ... Emma Thompson, Jim Carter, Tobias Menzies and Andrew Scott (Moriarty from Sherlock :D) ..just wow.
The movie might be a hard work ,, but it's worth it if you love classical tragedies of Shakespeare and you're prepared to see it in a new style.
