Quite good as a movie, the soundtrack is grand and evocative, the images are haunting and linger in your mind well after the end of the film. However, as an adaption of Hamlet, I find this somewhat unsuccessful. With its rushing of the first three acts, and its long stretches of silence for the second two, Gamlet is more a photographic wonder than a story. Although hitting most all the plot points as the play, this adaptation makes many cuts to important character soliloquies, thus creating for the viewer a mental obstacle course of confusion and non sequiturs. Be prepared to make absurd leaps if you are to fully enjoy this movie.
