King Lear Movie Review 1987

Information and Film Reviews for King Lear the Movie

Staff rating


Visitor rating
4.0 from 0 reviews

Loosely adapted from Shakespeare's tragedy of a king who loses everything. A fragmented French existential reading with gangster undercurrent. This updated version is dark, ominous, wandering, strange, and quite unlike the other 1984 remake. Or any other remake, for that matter.
