  • Critic Reviews of "O"

    March 31, 2008

    This arty melodrama is not likely to make teenage America get down with Shakespeare.

    March 25, 2008

    This transferral of the tragedy of the Moor to a contempo American high school is something that never should have gone further than a class assignment to see if it could be made to work.

    Credit, none the less, to the film-makers' game, unpatronising approach, and to Phifer and Stiles as compelling innocents.

    New York Observer

    In the end, the Shakespearean ideas collapse on film because of the youthful callowness of the characters.

    On your already groaning Shakespeare for Teens video shelf, stack this one above 10 Things I Hate About You ... and quite a bit below Romeo + Juliet.

    New York Magazine/Vulture

    It's a doomy dirge of a movie, in which the protagonists, or at least the actors who play them, aren't equipped to handle their outsize passions.

    July 06, 2008

    The presence of old lags Martin Sheen and John Heard just beggars belief. What were they thinking?

    Observer (UK)
    March 25, 2008

    It's highly enjoyable and well acted, with the Iago figure better motivated than in the original play, no single line of which has been retained except for the odd echo.

    Film Journal International
    March 01, 2007

    Helmer Nelson has fashioned a clever premise, helped along by a smart ensemble that manages to highlight Shakespeare's work without parodying it--no small accomplishment.

    Empire Magazine
    December 30, 2006

    Hartnett never allows him to become a hissable villain, keeping Hugo shy of our sympathies, yet his every move is utterly believable.

    September 17, 2006

    Long on the Shelf, O is well directed and decently acted, but its narrative, while more or less faithful to Shakespeare, tried to do too much, pushing the characters and their emotions to unreasonable and unconvincing extremes.

    Film Threat

    Leave it to Hollywood to make a bold, challenging film for teens (and adults) only to let it collect dust on a shelf as proposed release dates were set, then scratched, many times over.
