Last night I watched The Royal Shakespeare Company's production of Shakespeare's HAMLET starring David (Dr. Who) Tennent and Patrick (Star Trek) Stewart. The entire thing is streamable online: http://www.pbs.org/wnet/gperf/episodes/hamlet/watch-the-film/980/ (three hours and seven minutes)

well - its not my favorite Shakespeare - but that said, I do love Patrick Stewart doing Shakespeare. I was struck how much the production FELT like a stage play vs. a movie of the story. David Tennant's Hamlet was really very mad. which is (for me) marvelous to watch the descent into madness for the character.
