Anarchy

Cymbeline, one of William Shakespeare’s lesser-known dramas, is reinvented through the world of dirty cops and drug-dealing bike gangs. Directed by Michael Almereyda – who stays true to Shakespeare’s language as with 2000’s contemporary Hamlet – and stars Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Anton Yelchin and Ethan Hawke.

The film dazzles with its colors and textures, practically worshipping those jet-black leather jackets, while letting Ed Harris' eyes express what no monologue possibly could.

Has been branded a tragedy, a tragicomedy and a romance, and Mr. Almereyda embraces all three categories. The movie is by turns grim, grimly amusing and romantic, sometimes at once.

Almereyda's sweeping cuts take material that was already problematic and render it almost nonsensical.

A mash-up of social media shortcomings and Shakespearean tragedy that becomes as much a tale of cinematic ambition gone awry as anything the Bard intended.

Primarily, what this moody contemporary update does is expose the play as a second-rate Romeo and Juliet that just wasn't made for these times.

Cymbeline's familiar Elizabethan tropes do not translate well to a modern context, nor do the constant references to 'Caesar' or 'Romans.'
