masterpiece theater: king lear is truly a masterpiece
i never read or even saw king lear until my junior year in high school. after seeing this version of king lear in school, i loved it immediately. i enjoyed reading king lear and due to both factors king lear is now my favorite work by shakespeare. the fool is hilarious but equally wise. Ian holm does a fantastic job of playing the senile old king that forsakes the true and embraces the false. truly a film worthy of being part of a home collections, especially for shakespeare lovers.Was this review helpful?
