This page is a gateway to my reviews of Shakespeare on film (or, more accurately, Shakespeare on digital media), including cinema and television productions and filmed stage plays.

I've been seeing Shakespeare films since Zefferelli's Romeo and Juliet made the school circuits back in the early 1970s. However, I have decided to use the same standard for reviewing on-screen Shakespeare as I do for commenting on stage productions. Instead of writing from memory and relying on recollections that would not be entirely accurate, I will only review films I've just seen. Unlike live theater, however, Shakespeare committed to DVD can be re-viewed and then reviewed, and I will do that on an ongoing basis for this web site (as you might imagine, we have an extensive Shakespeare DVD library, which is growing monthly).
