Richard III (1995)
probably,the most splendid Sheakspeare screen adaptation ever.
just a sheer masterpiece!
"I am determined to prove a villain and hate the idle pleasures of these days."
my all-time favourite movie.
Sir Ian Mckellen is utterly stunning. Unforgettable, outstanding performance! Sir Ian is such an elegant, exquisite, bewitching villain that no one can help falling under his spell. No doubt, I would immediately agree to be murdered or tortured just to be proposed by him. Oh, fangirling is so humiliating. Anyway, Sir Ian`s Richard is by far the best Richard I`ve ever seen. You should excuse my probable subjectiveness, but I believe Laurence Olivier would have died of unbareable envy, had he watched Sir Ian playing this. I would say “Bravo!”, but I`ve watched this film for a thousand times or even more, so instead I will just cry and weep over the inexpressible beauty of Sir Ian. That will sound a bit trivial, but this guy is a genius. Thank you, Sir Ian, for being that kind of awesome. Keep on rocking.
