Shakespeare has received no shortage of contemporary cinematic takes, but we’d reckon there are few that have involved machine guns. So welcome to Michael Almereyda’s “Cymbeline,” which is not his first journey down the Bard’s path. He’s the filmmaker behind 2000’s slick version of “Hamlet,” but this looks like a different animal entirely.
Thank you Venice film festival. New trailer and a clip from Cymbeline has been released. Embedding didn’t work, so follow the link to view both.
