Shakespeare's plays have inspired British Oscar-winners and spaghetti Westerns, Bollywood thrillers, and Soviet epics. Covering twenty plays, Daniel Rosenthal's selection of "100 Shakespeare Films" spans a century of cinema, from a silent "Tempest" (1907) to Kenneth Branagh's "As You Like It" (2006). Fifty of the films retain Shakespeare's language, among them Laurence Olivier's "Henry V" and Orson Welles' "Othello". Alongside these are forty genre adaptations using modernized dialogue and re-imagined characters: Macbeth as a gangster in "Joe Macbeth" and "Maqbool"; Othello as a jazz pianist in "All Night Long". Rosenthal also assesses twenty-five foreign-language titles. Presented alphabetically by Shakespeare play, each chapter begins with a synopsis, and the film essays explore cinematography, design, dialogue, music and performance.
