Al Pacino

Looking for Richard

Edition 1996
111' - 1996 - Drama, Documentary - Dialogue: English
Director: Al Pacino Composer: Howard Shore With: Al Pacino, Alec Baldwin, Kevin Spacey
Al Pacino wonders about art and how to treat this sombre and famous "hunchbacked monster" of the Shakespearian theatre by making him more accessible to the general public. He takes us behind the scenes of his private theatre where he heartily questions knowledgeable people and the man in the street, be they British old stagers or American novices and confronts learned people and the ignorant while probing the text's mysteries, playing psychological games and the midwife with his partners, by reassuring, stimulating and encouraging his actors so that Shakespeare's language springs up in all its beauty and violence.
