Pacino explains that the ‘docudrama’ form has been used to explain and contextualise scenes from the play. Pacino’s off-the-cuff explanation of the scene between Richard and the Queen (while driving) is interspersed with shots from the scene (in Shakespearean garb). He ends with “I’m confused even saying this”. Emphasises the density of Shakespeare’s play. Quick cuts back and forth echo this confusion. This is confirmed by image of Pacino literally buckling under the ‘weight’ of Shakespeare’s oeuvre (humorously lifting a huge classic edition of the folio) Pacino goes to the Cloisters – a museum with a medieval setting. They’re in casual clothes in the medieval setting – as if the setting will help them ‘feel’ Shakespeare’s plot. Scene where people of the public interrupt: again emphasising the difficulty of finding a space for Shakespeare in the contemporary world. Pacino starts to give the opening soliloquy, intercut with analysis. “How exciting to start your play with the word ‘now’”, & Pacino performing to a group of high school students and asking for their explanation. Quite a lot of emphasis on the opening speech: it would be a good idea to think about the significance of this speech overall for a comparative study of the two texts.
