Hamlet has inspired four outstanding film adaptations that continue to delighta wide and varied audience and to offer provocative new interpretationsof Shakespeare's most popular play. Cinematic Hamlet contains the first scene-by-scene analysis of the methods used by Laurence Olivier, Franco Zeffirelli, Kenneth Branagh, and Michael Almereyda to translate Hamlet into highly distinctive and remarkably effective films.Applying recent developments in neuroscience and psychology,Patrick J. Cook argues that film is a medium deploying an abundance of devices whose task it is to direct attention away from the film's viewing processes and toward the objectrepresented. Through careful analysis of each film's devices,he explores the ways in which four brilliant directors rework the play into a radically different medium, engaging the viewer through powerful instinctive drives and creating audiovisual vehicles that support and complement Shakespeare'swords and story.Cinematic Hamlet will prove to be indispensable foranyone wishing to understand how these films rework Shakespeare into the powerful medium of film.
