Critic Reviews for The King Is Alive
The King is Alive interweaves the madness, the foolhardiness, the greed and the ferocity of human nature that Shakespeare depicted so brilliantly in Lear back in 1606, and shatters us again and again with its insights made refreshed.
:ags in the middle, growing more interesting -- if hardly more original -- only as the situation deteriorates.
It's all very watchable, thanks to excellent performances all around...
While I'm sure the idea was to show how isolation and desperation could augment these emotional scars, the descent happens so quickly that when tragedy strikes my emotional response was one more of indifference than involvement.
Somebody should really plop these guys down in front of an old Rodgers & Hammerstein spectacle.
