  • Critic Reviews
    "...RICHARD III is a film to listen to as much as to watch....[The] design is perhaps the most imaginative and atmospheric use of locations in a British movie for a while..."
    Sight and Sound

    "...A radical break with tradition....At once bracing and true to Shakespeare..." -- Rating: B+
    Entertainment Weekly

    "Spirited acting, machine-gun pacing and ominous Art Deco settings combine to rousing effect in this RICHARD III..."

    "...Made with gusto, daring and visual brilliance, this stripped-down, jazzed-up RICHARD pulsates with bloody life, a triumph of both modernization and popularization..."
    Los Angeles Times

    "...Not just a seductive telling of Shakespeare's story but also a perversely entertaining one..."
    Chicago Sun-Times
