Hope & Despair. Tragedy & Love. Romeo & Juliet.
I must have seen ROMEO + JULIET around ten times since its release, maybe even more, but this was my favourite viewing yet. Maybe it’s because I have a new found respect for Baz Luhrmann’s style, but I had an absolute blast revisiting it tonight.
The cast is incredible, while Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes always take the plaudits, I think it’s important to mention Harold Perrineau’s performance as Mercutio. He’s absolutely terrific and electrifies the screen.
I can’t see how anyone can sit through this and be bored, it moves with so much energy and vibrancy that even if you don’t like Shakespeare you should still have a fun time.
We need a 4K release ASAP.
