A Conversation for 'Richard III' by William Shakespeare

"Looking for Richard"

There's an Al Pacino film called "Looking for Richard" that's not an adaptation of the play, but sort of a juxtaposition of narration speculating about how one would approach various aspects of the story, and actual shots of scenes as examples. [URL removed by moderator]
Is it worth mentioning this in the "film" section of this article?

I think it is.
It's a wonderful movie and offers an entirely different approach to the play - one of Pacino's first words in it is "F#&%!"

Gotta love this guy.

I saw this film "advertised" in a video preview I rented a while back, but never got around to renting the video itself. Now I can't seem to find it - is this its title or is it "Searching for Richard" because the clerks also can't seem to locate it for me.

It's called Looking for Richard or, alternatively, Al Pacino's Looking for Richard.
It's distributed by Fox Searchlight, and has Alec Baldwin, Kevin Spacey, Kevin Kline, Aidan Quinn, James Earl Jones and Winona Ryder in it.
Tell those clerks that if they can't locate a movie with such a cast, they should close down and sell fruits and vegetables instead!smiley - winkeye

It is a small suburban store, not renowned for its sophistication!

I watched this last year on that really popular website. It's great. I was playing the Archbishop of Canterbury in Richard III and decided to find out as much as I could.
