RICHARD III (1995) (BLU-RAY)
Starring:  Maggie Smith, Ian McKellen, Dominic West, Nigel Hawthorne, Annette Bening, Robert Downey Jr, Jim Broadbent, Kristin Scott Thomas
Directed By:  Richard Loncraine
Composed By:  Trevor Jones

“A film with a dread fascination. McKellen occupies it like a poisonous spider in its nest…extra measures of repulsive detail scuttle through the entire film, making this Richard III perversely entertaining.”
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

“A radical break with tradition, turning Richard into a 1930s martinet dictator who strolls through marbled fascist sets that look like something out of Die Hard in Berlin…at once bracing and true to Shakespeare.”
—Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly

Director Richard Loncraine (The Missionary) gives us a cinematic version of Ian McKellen’s heralded 1990 National Theatre stage performance as the vile but fascinating Richard III (1995). Updating Shakespeare’s most entertaining history play to the 1930s, the filmmakers offer a slick-haired fascist Richard, disturbingly recognizable as one of our ambitious own, coldly, pleasurably eliminating his enemies and scooping up the widow (Kristin Scott Thomas) of one victim even as she’s burying him. Also starring Annette Bening, Jim Broadbent, Robert Downey, Jr., Nigel Hawthorne, John Wood, and a redoubtable pair of Downton-ites, Maggie Smith and Jim Carter.
