Titus Andronicus

If you want to see a movie that will visually blow your socks off, ya gotta see Titus Andronicus (2000)starring Anthony Hopkins. This was Shakespeare's first tragedy -- a violent, bloody revenge play set during the Roman Empire. Directed by Richard Griffin, Titus Andronicus incorporates modern sets (cars, motorcycles, etc.) with Ancient Rome derivative of Jesus Christ Superstar. Hopkins is outstanding.

  1. This is Shakespeare's most violent play - called "Shakespeare's Friday the 13th" by Fangoria magazine when they covered it in the 80's. I haven't seen this movie - but I might check it out one of these days!
