    Madagascar have a crack at the bard. You know the one, about the young noble who is given prescience of future rule and decides to fast-track the process with a bit of the old ultraviolence, with less than positive results.

    I been busting out the classics to get me through and man, these movies are just life support. This is a big one in my personal growth. First saw it at 16 when it had just come out for video rental and I'd never seen anything so distinctively kind-natured whilst treating of such dark complex social issues. The very premise, that evil is just mnemonic, that we could all be just a bump on the head away from deliverance from…
