Richard IIILaurence Olivier  
More Details

With RICHARD III, director, producer, and star Laurence Olivier (Hamlet) brings Shakespeare's masterpiece of Machiavellian villainy to mesmerizing cinematic life. Olivier is diabolically captivating as Richard, Duke of Gloucester, who, through a set of murderous machinations, steals the crown from his brother Edward. The supporting cast—including Ralph Richardson (Fallen Idol), John Gielgud (Arthur), and Claire Bloom (The Spy Who Came in from the Cold)—is just as impressive. Filmed in VistaVision and Technicolor, RICHARD III is one of the most visually inspired of all big-screen Bard adaptations.

Chimes at MidnightOrson Welles  
*****
More Details

The crowning achievement of Orson Welles's extraordinary film career, Chimes at Midnight was the culmination of the filmmaker s lifelong obsession with Shakespeare s ultimate rapscallion, Sir John Falstaff. Usually a comic supporting figure, Falstaff the loyal, often soused friend of King Henry IV s wayward son Prince Hal here becomes the focus: a robustly funny and ultimately tragic screen antihero played by Welles with looming, lumbering grace. Integrating elements from both Henry IV plays as well as Richard II, Henry V, and The Merry Wives of Windsor, Welles created a gritty and unorthodox Shakespeare film, one that he intended, he said, as a lament . . . for the death of Merrie England. Poetic, philosophical, and visceral with a kinetic centerpiece battle sequence that rivals anything else in the director s body of work Chimes at Midnight is as monumental as the figure at its heart.

Richard IIIRichard Loncraine  
More Details

Director Richard Loncraine (The Missionary) gives us a cinematic version of Ian McKellen's heralded 1990 National Theatre stage performance as the vile but fascinating Richard III (1995). Updating Shakespeare's most entertaining history play to the 1930s, the filmmakers offer a slick-haired fascist Richard, disturbingly recognizable as one of our ambitious own, coldly, pleasurably eliminating his enemies and scooping up the widow (Kristin Scott Thomas) of one victim even as she's burying him. Also starring Annette Bening, Jim Broadbent, Robert Downey, Jr., Nigel Hawthorne, John Wood, and a redoubtable pair of Downton-ites, Maggie Smith and Jim Carter.
