Movie Reviews

Absolutely fascinating!

"I read Blumenfeld's The Marlowe-Shakespeare Connection and he recommended this film. Rubbo the director is very even-handed yet the case that's created against Shakespeare is overwhelming. Very well done and fun."
Finally on DVD, a great documentary that will inspire furthe

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Marlowe-Shakespeare Connection blog (marlowe-shakespeare.blogspot) contains a recent interview with the writer/director of the film, Mike Rubbo. He has many interesting things to say about the "Marlowe as hidden hand" theory, now that a few years have elapsed since the original release of the film.

Much Ado About Something is a beautiful documentary with a not-so-new premise (Marlowe as author of Shakespeare works . . .Marlowe is often viewed as one of the top candidates, along with Earl of Oxford and Francis Bacon). Witty, informative, intriguing, and accessible . . .and an intellectual treat.

Two new books also promote/expand upon the premise of the film.
