Saw this earlier this week, now, this is probably the best Shakespeare film I've seen yet.

The mise-en-scene (LOL, whatever, it's an efficient umbrella term) and cinematography evokes hopelessness and tragedy like no other. Great use of the aspect ratio -- all those vast spaces.

The battle scene is an exemplary one.
