Shakespeare/ Richard III/ Al Pacino

Below is the first of SEVEN parts of Al Pacino’s documentary, “Looking For Richard”.

Many of you will remember Al Pacino from a number of films, not least his portrayal of Shylock in “The Merchant of Venice”.

The film is an attempt to look into how Shakespeare has become such an enormous cultural force, even though many people would say they didn’t know or understand his plays.

It’s well worth watching right through to Part Seven. Pacino is as engaging a narrator and commentator as he is an actor.


Oh, ignore the French subtitles. Unless you want to practise your French at the same time.
