William Shakespeare (2000)

Anybody seen this documentary?  I'd never heard of it, and IMDB offers no reviews or other details.  But look at the cast!  Ian McKellen, Kenneth Brannagh, Mark Rylance, Julie Taymor, Germaine Greer, Harold Bloom....  It'd be funny to get them all in the room at once, and then throw in Greenblatt and Rosenbaum :).

I recently saw excerpts from Derek Jarman's adaptation of The Tempest. It was a gothic version and... very odd. I'm still not quite sure whether it was good or bad. He shifted a lot of the dialogue aroud - which I'm usually not too fond of, but it was interesting, at least. He was obviously trying to make it unique.
