#Shakespeare400 DVD collection

“Tempt not a desperate man”

There’s a wealth of Shakespearean content available on film and this is just a mere scratching of the surface that takes in:

Five Kenneth Branaghs – Henry V, Hamlet, Much Ado About Nothing, Love’s Labour’s Lost and As You Like It, as well as the Othello in which he starred but did not direct;

Four takes on Romeo and Juliet – gay soldiers, animated gnomes, Baz Luhrmann and Orlando Bloom on a motorbike...

Three Macbeths are you Sher, look at my Fassbender and Dench and McKellen’s masterclass

Two more McKellens in Othello and Richard III

And a Coriolanus
A Merchant of Venice
A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Maxine Peake’s superb Hamlet

Plus Brucie bonuses in the real-life backstage film of The Bridge Project and a fictional backstage film called A Midwinter’s Tale. Happy reading!
