This non-traditional exploration of Shakespeare's classic The Tragedy of Hamlet is very well done. Yes, it covers the story completely, just as Shakespeare has written it. And yes, everyone dies in the end, so hard bitten traditionalist won't be disappointed.

The charm of this film is in the telling. The format is a mix between a Charlie Rose-style interview and CNN, with a studio interviewer asking penetrating questions of the characters, punctuated with "live" reports from the scene of the crime(s).

I've been teaching Hamlet for fifteen years, and I'm always looking for helpful resources to give my students a great experience. I would recommend viewing this DVD after you've read it and watched some of the many wonderful productions of Hamlet on DVD first. I say this because Hamlet is a compelling drama and continues to elicit powerful reactions to the many superb interpretations. "This is Hamlet" tends to be a bit glib and Schmoop-like, which means it's clever and good at explicating motivation, but it knocks down the tension too much for me to show as we're studying the play.
This is an excellent resource to any teacher's Hamlet curriculum. My students enjoyed a different take on a classic Shakespearean play. I highly recommend it for any high school English class studying Hamlet.
