Shakespeare's greatest play directed by Peter Greenaway at his most ambitious. An unlikely harmony of page and screen.
MacBeth with samurai - specifically with Toshiro Mifune and Akira Kurosawa - that's a combination to be feared and admired.
One of Orson Welles best and most overlooked. It also has The Battle of Shrewsbury, aka the greatest battle scene ever.
A curious hybrid of the Henrys (IV pt1, pt2 & 5) told with modern day flair. And before you scoff, Keanu is actually great here.
Branagh's a touch too old, but otherwise an astonishingly faithful adaptation with killer performances from Julie Christie & Kate Winslet.
