Favorite plays: Hamlet, Henry V, Much Ado About Nothing, King Lear. I took a Shakespeare course during my senior year of college, and my prof showed film adaptations every week. I actually liked the recent "Hamlet" with Ethan Hawke and Kyle MacLaughlin a lot. It wasn't a perfect adaptation by any means, but I admired the risks that the interpretation took. Another fascinating adaptation is "Ran" by Kurosawa (I think?) which is based on King Lear.
