In this episode, we continue our discussion from episode 12, episode 13, episode 14, and episode 15 on the Laurence Olivier and Ian McKellen Richard III films. We discuss breaking the fourth wall, adapting soliloquies for the screen, entrances and exits, what the camera represents, how Richard is The Worst, and how Shrek stole from Olivier’s Richard III.
