“Shattering…a coup de cinema…a fine, provocative film. Titus makes the best possible argument for a cautionary drama that contemplates the absolute worst in us.”
—Stephen Holden, The New York Times
“Hopkins is a magnificent Titus…Boldly imagined and brimming with passion, this is a striking addition to the Shakespeare filmography.”
—Time Out London
“This is the film Shakespeare’s play deserves, and perhaps even a little more.”
—Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
Julie Taymor’s stunningly cinematic adaptation of William Shakespeare’s first tragedy, Titus (1999), stars Anthony Hopkins as a noble but misguided Roman general who finds himself ensnared in an unwinnable war of vengeance with an implacable barbarian queen (Jessica Lange). With its time-bending mix of elements from Ancient Rome, Fascist Italy, Fifties America, and Punk Britain, this radical reimagining of a theatrical classic offers a dark vision of violence, murder, rape, and revenge.
