    visual components as well as the narrative itself. During an interview with The Guardian, Burton stated that his films are “like his children” (Raphael, 2010).

  • Comparing Zeffrelli's Hamlet And Gregory Doran

    demeanor. Tennant's out bursts were loud, abundant and filled with meaning that left Hamlet proud of his own skills in deception. Hamlet's relationship with Queen Gertrude was played on in both movies, but one more heavily then the other.
