English Movie Review for O Of all the updated classic films and adapted story portrayals Tim Blake Nelsons O an updated spin of Shakespeares Othello would catch the eye of any classic literature fan and also appeals towards younger audiences Contemporary versions of Shakespeares plays have often changed the settings but kept the characters plots and language more or less intact The updated Hamlet or Romeo and Juliet for example appealed to young pop culture audiences nonetheless using Shakespeares original words English teachers everywhere must be grateful O was like a Cliffs Notes version of Shakespeare with broad summaries of plots and characters translated into contemporary language even the slowest student can understand I am not partial to this format Its better because it is more understandable but all the intellectual vocabulary is being left out The movie was not bereft of its elements Dramatic irony is basically the entire story with symbolism and an adequate setting played intriguing roles in this movie adaptation There was an element of symbolism used that was not in the original story the beginning of the movie had doves and a single hawk and when the hawk came the doves left In the end of the movie we find out what and who the doves and the hawk represent What better way is there to help portray a Shakespearean play besides an outstanding score Wait What score Maybe it was that I was so into the story that I didnt hear the music or that the movie was simply lacking it An orchestrated soundtrack works extremely well with the by-the-book plays put to film such as Macbeth but in an updated film the music must also be brought to current standards The film was rated R for drug use and sexual situations This film could easily have been brought down to PG-13 and still have the same impact just hint to the sex
