by Matt Tamanini - Jan 12, 2016

Who would have imagined that a film based on an absurdist comedy about two minor characters from a 400-year-old tragedy would remain an existential escape 25 years after its initial release? The 1990 film adaption of Tom Stoppard's Tony-winning play ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD, which the playwright both wrote and directed, doesn't maintain all of the charm and intellect of the stage version, but is able to retain much of the delightful wackiness that made the play a defining work in the history of the American theatre in 1966. The 25th Anniversary Blu-ray/DVD hits shelves today, complete with a brand new interview with playwright turned director. (more...)
