Slavo Zizek reviewed the new film by Ralph  Fiennes, Corioluanus. A retelling of the Shakespeare play that TS Eliot once proclaimed was superior to Hamlet.

Money quote:

And this is why Fiennes’s Coriolanus is like the eyes of God or a saint in an Orthodox icon: without changing a word in Shakespeare’s play, the film looks squarely at us, at our predicament today, offering us the figure of the radical freedom fighter.
