5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking, 17 Jun 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Shakespeare: Richard II [David Tennant] [RSC] [DVD] [2014] [NTSC] (DVD)
Almost as if I had been there ... no, of course not, nothing will ever replace real theatre. But all in all the filming was well done and there are not enough theatre evenings for all the people who would like to go, so DVD is a good alternative to not seeing anything at all. Especially if you live abroad. So thank you also for the sub-tiltes which I find useful.

The acting is awesome, of all the cast, and the cast fit and filled their roles to a perfection. Most of all DT of course. There is no actor like him at the moment. He rips my heart out. I forgot that he was my Doctor, my Hamlet, my single father or young proud loony ... he becomes the person he plays, in a way, which I have rarely encountered before.

Greg Doran is of another universe as director and artistic director and I hope he stays with the RSC for long long years.

Some background material or making of would have been nice. There is an inverview with DT, but I would have liked some more.
