(1995) dir Richard Loncraine w/Ian McKellen, Annette Bening, Jim Broadbent, Robert Downey Jr., Nigel Hawthorne, Maggie Smith [104 min; Digital]
One of the most startling Shakespeare adaptations of all-time, Richard Loncraine’s RICHARD III casts Ian McKellen as the Bard’s Machiavellian and murderous Duke and sets the action in an imaginary, fascistic England.

“In a shamelessly entertaining display of acting brilliance, McKellen ‘plays’ the demon’s good arm as if it were a Stradivarius, executing one showy stunt after another.” – Hal Hinson, Washington Post

“This is Shakespeare exciting enough for even the most dubious, which, after all, is no less than the man deserves.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
