Hamlet 2000


Two stars

Your favorite 90’s weirdos in power suits and knitwear.  They shuffle through Manhattan high-rises.  They lounge in Blockbuster videos.  They’re trying to appropriate iambic pentameter for a burgeoning internet.  They’re pained and earnest and boring.  The texture is glass and steel.  The plot is The Lion King.  Also Hamlet.
