A surprising look at 1930's German aviation prep for upcoming war, unsuspected by the West. British designer Mitchell realizes that glider pilot training has direct implications for fighter staffing, and he throws every effort into getting a plane that can keep up with Arado, Messerschmitt, Junkers and the rest.
This Roman Polanski effort is interesting, but not great. For every clever bit, there's a Sam Peckinpah-type part that overdoes the violence. Generally good at getting the early Middle Ages effect with mud, animals and rough clothing. Very Hammer-like in using oppressive sets. Good location shooting, plus it's hard to tell sets from locations.
A broad documentary on the artistic process as it relates to one of the most-performed plays of classic English literature. Great insights into acting and storytelling.
Frank Thornton of "Are You Being Served" and John Cleese of Monty Python join a slightly more conventional cast with this effort. Fair to middling.
Transposes the events into an alternate 1930's fascist Britain. Somewhat plausible in that the character was a major villain, but Hitler was less self-aware than Shakespeare's bad guy. High level of acting but the concept falls somewhat short.
