Looking for Richard (Introduction from Al Pacino!)

Introduced by Al Pacino!
In the vein of Day for Night and 8 ½, this play-within-a-film tells the story of Richard III while documenting the tensions and battles to bring a potent, yet accessible Shakespeare production to fruition in the modern world. Pacino weaves a delicate and illuminating commentary around this famously knotty subject by combining scholarly insight along with man-on-the-street interviews, footage of preparing actors (Winona Ryder, Kevin Spacey, Alec Baldwin and Aiden Quinn among them), and scenes from the play’s performance itself.
Dir. Al Pacino, 1996, 112 min.
