Thanks, but I'm waiting for the paperback

In an earlier post, I mentioned that I went back to college this semester. I'm taking an English course and we're just finishing up Othello. Being the library lover that I am, I requested several copies of Othello. They all came in while I was in Houston (which was awesome, thanks for asking). On Monday I went to the library to pick up

the movie starring Bob Hoskins:

the movie starring Ian McKellan (yes, from LOTR):

and the movie starring Laurence Fishburne:

The woman at the desk looked curiously at my three different copies of Othello movies. I explained that I was studying it in college and had a test on it this week. Her retort? "Did you know this is available as a book, too?" Cute.


In the interest of full disclosure, I also borrowed the audio cds of Othello:

The test was this morning and I'm hoping for a B or better. I still have to write a paper over the weekend. Whose bright idea was it to go back to school?

Can you paper be a comparative analysis of the different videos? :o)
(I can't believe that I signed up for yet another class next semester....)

I was just going to say, I'd love to hear out of all those different versions, which you really liked the best!

Good luck, hope it the exam went well!
