- Hamlet. Kenneth Branagh's very full 1996 production is usually considered definitive amongst modern versions. (Warner Home Video, DVD 2007. 242 minutes.) But over versions are worth watching: Franco Zeffirelli's 1991 production starring Mel Gibson is good (Warner Home Video, DVD 2004, 130 minutes); older efforts are Laurence Olivier's 1948 black & white "psychoanalytic"-themed version (Criterion, DVD 2000. 155 minutes), and Grigori Kozintsev's 1964 Russian production. (Facets, DVD 2006. 140 minutes.) A fine dress rehearsal production is Sir John Gielgud's 1964 Hamlet, starring Richard Burton and, as Claudius, Broadway star (and my namesake) Alfred Drake (Image Entertainment, DVD 1999. 191 minutes.). Among the most recent productions is director Gregory Doran's fine effort for the Royal Shakespeare Company starring David Tennant, Patrick Stewart and Penny Downie (BBC Worldwide, 2010. 182 minutes). There's also director Michael Almereyda's NYC-set updating to consider †it stars Ethan Hawke, Kyle MacLachlan, Julia Styles, Bill Murray and Sam Shepard, among others (Miramax, 2001. 112 minutes).
