A fresh take is apparent from the surgical elimination of the spooky throat-clearing scene on the battlements of Castle Elsinore. In its place, a silent prologue spotlights the grief-stricken Hamlet (Leo Marks) kneeling before a towering cross at his father's funeral. Cutting to the unseemly revelry, two months later, at the marriage of Hamlet's mother, Gertrude (Lee Ann Manley), to his uncle Claudius (Paul Sulzman) neatly telescopes the two seismic events that threaten his sanity.

No feigned madness for this melancholy Prince--a noble mind is here o'erthrown in Marks' edgy portrayals. The depths of his harrowing descent and hard-fought return are eloquently reflected in the heartfelt apology for his mental lapse that he offers to his mortal enemy Laertes (Brendan Bradley). Insight and feeling are hallmarks of the production's accessible, rapid-fire line readings, which are refreshingly free of mannered thespianship (one of the few dramatic pauses is amusingly placed after Polonius' promise "I will be brief").

Teeming with vitality and intensity, Kubzansky's in-your-face staging bursts from both ends of the reconfigured 80-seat venue through a central runway flanked by the two audience rows. The solid ensemble performances is heightened by Randall Tico's atmospheric sound design.

It's not anything

For a start it's miss-labelled as a game, which is annoying.

The Animation itself is well done and the style used is eye catching. But the story as it is... well it's not drama, it's not funny, it's not even that much of a parody. It's really just nice animation of nothing.

Has appeal

This was interesting to watch because of how good the animation is. Everything (especially ThorClock) was just represented in the silliest ways I could imagine. I can understand how you got the title as that is what you do in this cartoon. You really don't see that ending coming. The downsides are that it doesn't have that much detail in terms of the opening scene. I found the description more interesting than the flash.

Still, this was probably just a joke intended for the day and it worked out well. You have done your fellow Clocks honor with this silly thing. You know, that ass could definitley be worn as a hat. I was afraid this would be a very Anti-Clock flash, but it wasn't that bad at all. I hope you had a good Clock Day two years ago.

Just another astounding movie!

It was not only the highly interesting characters that appealed to me as a person, as much as the plot.
The socially criticizing dialogue (which was, above all, well-written and -more than frequently- witty at its least) really made it appear that the actor portraying Hamlet (another astouding performance by Sir Leo Marks) meant every word of every line he let slip from his lips, therefore enhancing the already amazing credibility of this grand piece of cinematography.

I could go on for hours about the great masterpiece that has been delivered here, but for now, I will just summarize this movie in one word: Absolutely breathtaking.

Keep up the good work!
