Jackson knows what he is doing. His final injunction to his readers recalls Heminge and Condell: "watch the films again-and again". This generous and intelligent book will certainly help them do just that. (Emma Smith, The Times Literary Supplement)
a mine of information supported by thorough, well-documented archival research ... it clearly has its place on the shelves of all who either wish to have an entertaining introduction into the most important feature films based on Shakespearean texts, or who enjoy being challenged out of old assumptions and made to think and rethink their former opinions. (Kinga Foldvary, Sixteenth Century Journal)
