Hamlet (1996)

I just saw Kenneth Branagh's film Hamlet once again, and it holds up.

I thought Derek Jacobi's Claudius was brilliant and made the usurper a truly central character.

And having seen Branagh first as Hamlet and then (in the DVD intro) as himself, I was amazed by the magic power he has to turn his ordinary English self into such eye-rivetting characters.
