Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 88 - Shakespeare

With news that a new 300-ified version of Romeo and Juliet is in the works, Matt and I decided to spend this week's episode talking about some of our favourite Shakespeare adaptations. We discuss the reasons why Shakespeare's works lend themselves to many disparate genres and settings, how different actors and directors try to convey the spirit of the works without necessarily adhering to the style, and what are some of our favourite film versions. I also get to talk about Gargoyles for a bit, which is always a treat.
