This time, though, the turf and the weapon of choice have taken a turn toward the surreal. The next two lines of the Prologue are displayed as newspaper headlines and juxtaposed with clips of riot police attempting to restore order on the streets.

The Nurse is the true domestic, raw nature, full of uncompromised loyalty but ultimately compromised. The dream they shared the night before is the axis of the whole action: Luhrmann presents Verona as a modern city, dominated by scenes of chaotic urban violence.

Shakespearean drama, on the other hand, was written to be heard as an auditory experience. On stage, the characters described the setting in their speeches. He spoke the immortal words of Shakespeare as if they were his own and touched the hearts of millions.

Serves as an anchor as intended. Longtime rivals in religion and business, the Montagues and the Capulets share a page from the Jets and Sharks of West Side Story when they form rival gangs.

Latins in his day were considered: The king of the indie and the "troubled child" role was now being recognized. A 10th anniversary special edition DVD containing extra features and commentary was released on February 6,while a Blu-ray edition was released on October 19, A 16th-century playgoer would have associated the hot climate, fiery, passionate nature of the people, and strong sense of family honor with the Italian locale.

By comparison, the film puts the viewer in the midst of the strife-torn city infected with crime and decay. Aerial shots pan across the cityscape as police cars and helicopters dart about, and human casualties are strewn across the ground.

So he was a relentless entertainer and a user of incredible devices and theatrical tricks to ultimately create something of meaning and convey a story.
