artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

RSC’s Richard II (starring David Tennant) rating: green light

rscrichardii

A must-see for David Tennant fans who couldn’t get to London or Stratford for the RSC’s electric production; he’s as dynamic on stage as he is on screen.
I’m “biast” (pro): love David Tennant, big Shakespeare geek

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

I have not read the source material

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)

If you’re tempted to post a comment that resembles anything on the film review comment bingo card, you might want to reconsider.

  • Beowulf

    But, wait…. If I get the disc, then he IS on screen!

    I like David Tennant more than any straight guy should.

  • It is not possible to like David Tennant too much, no matter what one’s inclinations.

  • Beowulf

    It seems to be available only on Region 1 DVD here, not Blu-ray (it is Region 2/B). Damn it, I don’t want to get a region-free BRD player if I can possible avoid it.
