Drama
Director Tim Blake Nelson is probably best known as a character actor (he played Delmar in O Brother, Where Art Thou?), but he brings a strong eye and good sense of pacing to this teen-film adaptation of Othello. The story of jealousy and complicated revenge is racy and violent, just like all the great classics, and star Josh Hartnett does a great job as Hugo, the film's stand-in for Shakespeare's Iago. Definitely worth seeing if, like all lovers of great literature, there's nothing you enjoy more than murder, infidelity and horny teenagers playing basketball.
