In the movie "Looking for Richard" Al Pachino tries to show that even though Shakespeare's use of language is somewhat strange to a modern reader, its message and lessons are still very identifiable. By filming it in such a way that the dialogue is broken up with explanations, and scenes of the actors themselves explaining their characters actions and reasoning, it helped to bring into clear focus for the viewer what was most important in the play. Even though the precise words that Shakespeare used are obviously meaningful, the over all message is the important thing to keep in mind.
