The Merchant of Venice

Drenched in moody atmosphere and bristling with intelligence, Michael Radford's take on the play is essentially tragic, using the camera not only to 'open up' the text visually, but, more important, to explore it thematically. Much of that exploration centres on Shylock who, in matched shots of contrasting poignancy, silently bookends the entire text - a flawed but empathetic figure more sinned against than sinning.
