    Olivier directed, produced and stars in another one of Shakespeare's best story's. Olivier was nominated for an Oscar as Shakespeare's compelling and evil protagonist, solid supporting work from Bloom, Gielgud and Richardson. Although the study of evil behaviour is retained in the film, Olivier obviously stages many scenes, something that would be evident throughout his later Shakespearian films. Not as good as "Henry V" or "Hamlet," but this still is a good film to see from time-to-time. I give it a 4/5.

  • A mite too Machiavellian

    Great cast, great color and composition, but this movie leaves me a bit empty. Although this is one of Shakespeare's most performed and noted plays, I (and many Shakespearian scholars and buffs) don't think it is one of his best. We know from the beginning Richard is a lying louse, kind of fun watching him destroy others, but after a while you don't really have anyone to root for and his death is well.... inevitable. Film is intentionally stagey like Olivier's Henry V, but somehow Henry V seems colorful and fun, this film just seems too stagey for its own good.Still it is well directed, acted, and produced, so enjoy.

    I really, really tried to watch this movie but I never understood it. I thought all of the stars in it were wonderful, but I just never could quite get the plot. I will admit I had to miss the first five minutes of the movie, but I never dreamed that would cause me to lose myself in the entire show. I hope to see this version again. As with all movies that I have witnessed in my life so far, I prefer the original to the remakes!

  • my favorite movie ever

    when i first watched this beautiful movie i had the same feeling as if watching "wizard of oz" as a small child. this is pure movie magic from the acting right down to the splendid oil painting like color. olivier is peerless in skillfully driving the production with bringing all of shakespeare's obsessively clever wordplay into being. of note is richardson actually completely stealing a scenw late in the film with some of most clever stage business involing food and utensils that you will ever witness...highly recommended....as good a teleplay as can be imagined
