...audaciously steps outside of the tradition when it comes to film adaptations of the bard's works, but it also does so much more: notably, find distinct meaning in a play where all notions of importance lacked a central point.

This may just be the most striking and unsettling translation of Shakespeare ever committed to film.

It's hard to see it matching the success of other recent adaptations of the Bard.

At once mesmerizing and jarring to the point that the audience can never get comfortable in the film.

A consistently absorbing entertainment that never becomes either campy or facetious, given its inescapable exaggerations.

It's amazing how enjoyable Shakespeare can be when Kenneth Branagh isn't involved.

Hopkins unwisely echoes his performance as Hannibal Lecter, but Lange rises to the occasion with a mesmerizingly in-your-face portrait of mother love gone haywire.

Cinema em Cena

Tecnicamente brilhante, esta inventiva adaptação traz ótimas atuações - com exceção de Cumming, que parece estar ensaiando para um revival de Rocky Horror Picture Show.

The real star of the show is Lange.

Along with everything else, the acting styles here clash, though the dissonance serves the drama's bellicose theme.

Sight and Sound

Eager to allow Shakespeare's words to shine through as clearly as possible, Taymor shoots the dialogue scenes fairly straight, with a minimum of background action.

Taymor manages to play with images and music as effectively as Luhrman's Romeo + Juliet or McKellan's Richard III, yet weaves a tale so powerful and stark that it leave you breathless.

...si esperan una versión de Shakespeare "alternativa" busquen algo light, como Romeo+Julieta, el remake relativamente reciente, pues Titus no se anda con rodeos.

Shadows on the Wall

Lacks the subtlety and subtext to make the story really work on screen.
