Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead
Comedy • PG • 1991 • 1 hr 57 min
Hilarious! Oldman and Roth are the perfect Shakespearean odd couple. Also, very faithful to Tom Stoppard’s original play. A favorite!
Great if you’re into Shakespeare. Tells a classic story from a different perspective. Good acting and characters.
Superbly acted, even if the adaption doesn’t quite fit the film format
Gary Oldman and Tim Roth are great together. Pulling off their portrayal of the two characters wonderfully.
It’s basically Schrodinger’s Cat the Movie with a little Hamlet thrown in for spice.
The dialogue is fun and it pairs nicely with the existential plot.
A comedy about a tragedy. Quotable, witty, brilliant.
I haven’t seen this in years (I’m overdue for a rewatch), but I remember it being so witty and hilarious. Roth & Oldman are the perfect duo
Es una comedia con una trama tan buena y tan brillantemente ejecutada, que cuesta catalogarla en pocas palabras!
Tom Stoppard truly created a masterpiece of absurdist comedy and metatheatre whilst Oldman and Roth are great in the roles.
