We've had two weeks of silent films, nearly exhausting my reservoir. Before we have "Shakespeare and Opera" week or "Shakespeare and Star Trek" week (both distinct possibilities), we'll have something of a "Random Shakespeare" week.
It has been a while since I've thought of the film entitled Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Undead (for which, q.v.). The vampire-related, Holy-Grail-quest-themed, Hamlet-production film doesn't yet have a release date, but subtle promotions for it continue. Here are three videos (from a site called Shakespiracy) that attempt to create a backstory—in this case, thousands of years of backstory!—for the film. They are bizarre—but they're also interesting. And I find them funny.
