Terry Teachout's List of Shakespeare Flicks ain't awful...except for
"Looking for Richard" which I've always found
a humiliating excercise to behold.
It makes American actors look like Shakespeare
is utterly beyond them.
I've never understood why it's considered worth a look.
Unless you like to watch a car wreck.
