Not exactly an "old" film; in fact, New York's Lincoln Center Film Society
has extended it's run of the film to this Thursday (Feb. 9), thank goodness. I've yet to see it but am curious about what anyone here who has seen it thinks of Fiennes' outing. I'm also brushing up a bit on the play (many critics over the centuries calling it Shakespeare's finest). Anyone here have any lingering impressions?
I'll give a review, of course, after I've seen it but here's
an interesting (nearly 2 hour) critical intro to the play/film by Harvard's Prof. Marjorie Garber on Coriolanus and its influence on the culture.
Also, here's a well observed review
of the film that I'm unlikely to top.
