I was a bit worried when the film Anonymous was released. I feared it might be so slick and well-presented as to lead the unwary into unwarranted conclusions.
I don't think I should have been concerned.
From the trailer, it looks like the Oxfordian position doesn't even work as a piece of fiction. Directed by Edward D. Wood, Jr., the famed director of the notoriously-awful 1959 film Plan 9 from Outer Space (though inexplicably billed under a pseudonymous director's name), Anonymous seems to follow the usual Oxfordian methodology: inaccuracies, misstatements, lacuna, and the use of Sir Derek Jacobi. Here's the trailer, which is, mercifully, only two minutes long:
I might watch the film eventually—just as I might re-watch Plan 9 from Outer Space sometime—just to marvel at the ridiculousness of it all. If nothing else, it will be interesting to see how Edward D. Wood, Jr. has developed as a director since he faked his own death in 1978. And it will be interesting to know why the actors involved—David Hasselhoff, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mark Wahlberg, Lindsay Lohan, and Willem Dafoe—chose to use pseudonyms instead of their real names in this production. Perhaps they're simply embarrassed to be connected to an outmoded conspiracy theory with no basis in the truth.
