Best Pick with John Dorney, Jessica Regan and Tom Salinsky Episode 211: Titus Released 12 January 2022 For this episode, we watched Titus, Julie Taymor’s 1999 adaptation of Shakesepeare’s play Titus Andronicus. The film stars Anthony Hopkins, Jessica Lange, Alan Cumming and Colm Feore and it was not a box office success, earning less than $3m from its $18m budget. Nor was it a big success at the Academy Awards where it was nominated only for its costumes, where it lost to Mike Leigh’s Topsy-Turvy. We also delve into the history of Spider-Man: Turn off the Dark and the life and work of Anthony Hopkins. https://www.ted.com/talks/julie_taymor_spider_man_the_lion_king_and_life_on_the_creative_edge Spider-Man vs Arachne https://youtu.be/-dT3EUbOQY4 Othello https://youtu.be/epW6H6UlfcE Theatre of Blood https://youtu.be/cmboDDMPRVw American Horror Story https://netflix.com/gb/title/70210884 Anthony Hopkins acceptance speech https://youtu.be/Y111jltWqoo Dust Devil https://youtu.be/eejvUNu_-Dk BEST PICK – the book is out in February 2022 and is available now for pre-order.
