Everyone knows how much easier it is to create fantastic juxtapositions on-screen than onstage, and even the most shocking elements in this 1999 production of Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus are only blandly, academically symbolic, surreal, or sensational. As Titus, Anthony Hopkins invokes Hannibal Lecter mainly because it’s the thing to do. Written and directed by Julie Taymor; with Jessica Lange and Alan Cumming, and production design by Dante Ferretti. 162 min.
