Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

So, this parcel we received...

We watched it last night, and thoroughly enjoyed it. Lots of clever word play, some excellent performances by Messrs Roth and Oldman (though Richard Dreyfuss should ask for his money back on that accent...), and yet more academic discourse from Stoppard. I'd love to see it staged, now.

Some very strange thoughts passed through my head while watching this. It's been compared to Godot, of course, and I can see why. But it was also reminding me of Bill and Ted's Bogus Journey... And if the Pythons produced a spoof version of this, would we be able to tell? And, most obvious of all: Seth Green is Tim Roth's lovechild.

Plus: Now I understand kalypso_v 's icon...
