Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: Puts Shakespeare's greatest romance in a choke-hold and takes it slam-dancing.
- Desson Thomson, Washington Post, Wednesday, August 28, 2002
Fresh: Luhrmann's gleefully cinematic version of the play is so relentlessly inventive and innovative, it takes 20 minutes to get a grasp on how appropriate is his approach to the material.
- Geoff Andrew, Time Out, Thursday, February 9, 2006
