What is the movie Hamlet about?
1948 “Hamlet”, Laurence Olivier’s adaptation of the famous Shakespeare’s play, holds many distinctions. It was the only Shakespeare adaptation to win an Academy Award for best picture, and also the first British film to do so. Laurence Olivier became the first actor to direct himself to an Oscar (he was also nominated for the best director, but didn’t win). It is often considered the best film adaptation of “Hamlet” ever. It has also proven itself very controversial, due to Olivier’s liberties with the original text. To cut the duration of the film, Olivier has altered and omitted large parts of the Shakespeare original, even completely dropping some major supporting characters, such as Fortinbras, Rosencrantz and Guildenstern. Olivier has also been accused of robbing the play of its meanings and oversimplifying things, painting Hamlet’s quandary as mere indecision. “Hamlet” tells the famous tale of a Danish prince who begins seeing the ghost of his dead father King Hamlet, who informs him that he has been poisoned by his own brother, now King Claudius, who has just married young Hamlet’s mother only a month after the death of her late husband. Hamlet feigns madness in order to make King Claudius reveal himself as the killer and stages a play resembling the circumstances of his father’s murder, starting off a chain of events which can only end in tragedy.

I have a list of every film I've ever seen, and I rank them all depending on how much--or how little--I like them. This film ranks last. It is without a doubt the most poorly constructed, boring, difficult to watch film I've ever seen. The fact that it is based on such a great work of fiction makes it even worse.

Hamlet is one of the most complex and fascinating characters ever created, and no two great actors ever play him quite the same way. Olivier portrays him primarily as "a man who could not make up his mind", and his fine and often subtle acting brings to his role a deep understanding of his character's inner struggles and dilemmas, both moral and practical. He renders Hamlet's most famous lines in a distinctive way that reveal the many possible paths in Hamlet's future. It is a performance not to be forgotten.
