William Shakespeare's Romeo + Juliet
This Shakespeare rendition is not so much a reconceptualization as a recontextualization of the 400-year-old play. This Romeo + Juliet is a rich visual feast, besotted with the fervor of its acrobatic camerawork and kinetic staging and its mind-bending aggregation of unrelated but resonant fragments of 20th century iconography. It is a Shakespearean work thoroughly conceived for the screen. DiCaprio and Danes again prove that they are two of the best actors of their generation. And William Shakespeare has once more demonstrated that he is a storyteller for all time.
