Akira Kurosawa

110. The Reduced Shakespeare Company

 

 

Described as "intellectual vaudeville" by The New York Times, the madcap spoof The Reduced Shakespeare Company became the longest running comedy on the London stage.

            The complete works of William Shakespeare are presented in an hilariously abridged fashion, including the dispensing of all the Bard's comedies in one fell swoop (because the tragedies are funnier). Othello is presented as a rap song, Titus Andronicus becomes a cooking show, and there's much more zaniness as well. "This trio of modern Marx brothers will keep you in stitches" (The Boston Herald). 90 mins.

113. Richard III (1912)

James Keane

1912

 

Believed to be the earliest surviving American feature film, this historic silent movie was also the first feature-length adaptation of Shakespeare's work produced anywhere in the world. William Buffum, a film collector and former projectionist from Oregon, preserved the nitrate reels in his basement for more than 35 years before donating the film to the AFI.

            Unaware of the film's full significance, Buffum's meticulous care kept it in near-mint condition. A major production for its time, the film stars Frederick Warde, a popular Shakespearean actor of the day, in the title role of the cold-hearted king. The AFI restored the fading color tints for the film and commissioned a musical score by legendary film composer Ennio Morricone. "...an amazing surprise...The fact that the print is in nearly mint condition is nothing short of a miracle" (Martin Scorsese). 59 mins.

Instead, she sets Titus in a nightmarish netherworld, where traditional Roman costumes and settings are married with trappings from other eras, particularly the 20th century. Consequently, we are treated to the unlikely spectacles of Roman Centurions driving cars and a Goth playing an arcade video game" (James Berardinelli, ReelViews).   172 mins.
