Interview with Al Pacino, by Leslie Rigoulot

Review, by Leslie Rigoulot

"Caught In The Web" Inter(net)views, QuickTime:
"No Ego" with Michael Maloney (1.8mb)
"Step at a Time" with Al Pacino (0.6mb)

In the vein of Truffaut's "Day For Night" and Fellini's "8 1/2", the movie is a simultaneous telling of the classic drama and an exploration of artistic and practical battles to understand the play, make Shakespeare accessible, and, ultimately, to finish the film. The story of Richard's ascent to the throne and the filmmaker's interpretations are woven throughout the picture, adding insight and comedy to this classic tragedy.
