In high school I worked on a stage production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead, and loved it. When the movie came up on our instant queue on Netflix, I was excited to sit down and watch it with the hubby. Unfortunately, the movie version is almost unwatchable. The cast is strong, but the combination of poor audio quality and bad soundtrack muffles the dialogue to the point that you miss all the meaty humor and witty repartee that make this play so special. Additionally, the bizarre set and staging choices give it a disconnected, dream-like feel that is distracting and frustrating to follow, and prevents the audience from fully placing the characters and actions within the Hamlet storyline.
