Movie Reviews

Apartheid Othello - an outstanding performance by a brillian
C. F. Poulson | Hobart, Tasmania, Australia | 05/17/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is one of the two most powerful performances of Othello I have seen and the best on DVD (and that is high praise considering the superb performances of Laurence Fishbourne and Kenneth Branagh in their Othello.) Considering that the play was performed in Apartheid Johannesburg in 1988 makes it even more daring and brilliant. The play is complete (although I did not follow the original play text) -- the performance here is 188 minutes and riveting for the entire time. Unlike more current versions, this performance is on the stage (at The Market Theatre in Johannesburg) as is reinforced by the souind of footsteps on the wooden planks of the stage. It stands as the very best I have seen. If you can only purchase one, this is it!"
Powerful and intense performances

"I've shown this powerful and moving production of Othello to my college class of Business majors. All of us were mesmerized by the outstanding actors and direction. This is a brilliant performance."
