An Acting MasterclassBy Mr Pacino's Agent from Newcastle , 04 Jan 2005
[Highly rated reviewer]Is this a film, is this a documentary ? Well it's both and it's brilliant. Follow Al Pacino on his rollercoaster jouney into discovering Shakespear and Richard III, from casting the roles, through understanding Shakespear's iambic pentameter, to creating a character and the actual performance. See Pacino, Spacey and Baldwin shine as themselves in this entertaning and informative insight into the world of method acting

A horse !By stefv (60 reviews) , 28 Jul 2013This is a documentary about American actors trying to do Shakespeare. I dont know why they were worried, some scenes (death of Clarence) are very well played indeed. Kevin Spacey as Buckingham outshines Al Pacino as Richard. But the costumes are awful.
Looking for RichardBy Ave (63 reviews) from Rickmansworth , 27 Jul 2010It was amazing It made me want to see the Shakespeare;s play. It was a documentary more thrilling than any fiction. Beautifully acted, good mixing of the play and history and the reality of theatre in modern America.
Wow! I might buy the film to watch again.

Looking for RichardBy ritanewby (6 reviews) from Skelmersdale , 01 Sep 2009In this 'documentary' Al Pacino and friends set off on a quest to make one of Shakespeare's most difficult plays accessible to the general public, and succeeds. With stars such as Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin and Winona Ryder helping him along the way, we see a story unfold through discussion and disagreement and through brilliant theatrical performances from all involved. Somewhat of a This is Spinal Tap in its editing. Al Pacino dominates the role of Richard and demonstrates an acting ability far beyond the term Greatness.
