A documentary not a play - Looking for Richard review by JD

Spoiler Alert

I thought that this would be Al Pacino doing Richard III. If you are aware that it is a documentary about making Shakespeare accessible particularly to Americans and how a serious method actor becomes involved with a play this is well worth watching. There is only about 3 minutes of Spacey which I found strange and 10 minutes of play footage which I would have preferred to know beforehand.

An enthusiastic approach to Shakespeare - Looking for Richard review by BE

Obviously a labour of love for Al Pacino directing this docu/play of Richard III. Immensely enjoyable but a lot longer than the specified 107 minutes.
