Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Filmed performances of all 19 plays by Samuel Beckett, one of the great iconoclasts of theater and literature, come to DVD in the four-disc gift set Beckett on Film. Touching not only the greats -- Waiting for Godot and Endgame -- but also the more abstract and less often produced, such as Not I and the 45-second Breath, this completist's dream encompasses all of the playwright's touchstone themes and offers a documentary about the Beckett Film Project. The talent roster is impressive as well: Actors include Sir John Gielgud, John Hurt, Jeremy Irons, Michael Gambon, Julianne Moore, Harold Pinter, Alan Rickman, and Kristen Scott-Thomas, while notable directors consist of Atom Egoyan, Damien Hirst, Neil Jordan, Conor McPherson, Damien O'Donnell, David Mamet, Anthony Minghella, Karel Reisz, and Patricia Rozema. In these reverent productions, Beckett's work is as challenging as ever -- and its effect just as powerful. The plays included are as follows:
  • Waiting for Godot (2 hours)
  • Not I (14 minutes)
  • Rough for Theatre I (20 minutes)
  • Ohio Impromptu (12 minutes)
  • Krapp's Last Tape (58 minutes)
  • What Where (12 minutes)
  • Footfalls (28 minutes)
  • Come and Go (8 minutes)
  • Act Without Words I (16 minutes)
  • Happy Days (1 hour 19 minutes)
  • Catastrophe (7 minutes)
  • Rough for Theatre II (30 minutes)
  • Breath (45 seconds)
  • That Time (20 minutes)
  • Endgame (1 hour 24 minutes)
  • Act Without Words II (11 minutes)
  • A Piece of Monologue (20 minutes)
  • Play (16 minutes)
  • Rockaby (14 minutes)
