Hamlet/Horatio

I liked the idea of this film -- a focus on the friendship, but the film itself sticks so close to the text and interpretations of Hamlet that it feels as though the angle was a pitch to get it made. 

I actually liked it...as a rendition of Hamlet. But I don't see how the angle affected the text other than a framing device where Horatio is making the film about Hamlet. So, yeah, he tells Hamlet's story.

There was a pointed homoerotic bond implied between the two which didn't bother me but which felt less revolutionary than I think the makers thought it would be. 

 

Gonna try to do a movie a month in June...we'll see if that lasts....
