October 28, Full Review…. September 2, Rating: 2. February 8, Rating: B- Full Review…. View All Critic Reviews Aug 15, Anonymous ambitiously conveys the theory that Shakespeare did not write a single play.
A theory that I am very much interested in, The Oxfordian Theory proposes that the Earl of Oxford actually wrote the plays and penned Shakespeare to them.
Being raised in a Puritan household, poetry and art was frowned upon but the Earl yearned to keep writing plays. Honestly if you have time, research on this theory On top of this though we have political conspiracies within the Elizabethan court, illicit romantic affairs and plenty of back stabbing nobleman.
Very ambitious, both in scale and it's subject His desire for cinematic grandeur merely takes away from the plot focus and becomes messy.
There is just too much. What I did admire though, was the portrayal of how the utilisation of words and art can convey ideologies.
As the Earl looks down from his balcony in the Globe Theatre, you can see the power he holds through his plays and how the audience are manipulated through certain character portrayals.
After all, words are the most powerful tool one can have. Rhys Ifans was excellent casting as the Earl of Oxford, his calm demeanour held much authority and power.
Vanessa Redgrave and David Thewlis were also noteworthy. I wasn't too keen on Rafe Spall's portrayal of Shakespeare but in order to convey this theory it kind of made sense to make him a rather slimy character.
The script and narrative is where the film falters. Exposition followed by backstory followed by politics followed by more exposition Focus on the intrigue of Shakespeare being a fraud, would've been a far tighter plot.
Also the ending was too Having said that, this film is full of ambition and I find it be rather watchable. Not bad from Emmerich I must say.
Luke A Super Reviewer. Jul 15, In Emmerich's hands the "truth" about Shakespeare turns out to be boring. Marcus W Super Reviewer.
Dec 18, The idea that Shakespeare didn't write his plays is not a new one and is definitely worthy of a film treatment but Emmerich isn't clear which direction he should take this.
Is it a comedy? Is it a drama? Is it a tragedy? He seems to have modelled the film on the whole of Shakespeare's canon and the whole thing is a hodgepotch of styles.
Ifans is very good as the lead but Spall seems to be playing more of the comedy and it all gets a bit ridiculous towards the end with loads of secrets revealed.
A nice try but it's all a bit of a mess. David S Super Reviewer. Nov 23, Whether you believe in the theory posited in Anonymous, or whether facts are ignored or distorted is irrelevant - since this is a fine production that, from the very first frame, tells you the yarn you are about to witness is nothing more than a play based on a theory.
Get past whether the theory has merit and you have a ripping good tale, extremely well acted by all concerned that is excellently filmed with a script that, while not necessarily worthy of the Bard of Avon, is intriguing and holds passages of truth and beauty.
I really enjoyed how the tale weaves back and forth in time and place, picking up threads from earlier scenes that may be nothing more than portents of what will follow, or things that will give later scenes greater impact.
I also enjoyed the injection of selected scenes from the Bard's plays and how they infer what is going on politically at the time. Having seen Henry V at an outdoor theater built to resemble the Globe this past summer, it was a true joy to see the before the battle scene in all its "hooray for England" glory; and then watch the reaction from the "mob" in the audience.
Similarly I was also taken with the scenes from Richard III and the explanation that the portrayal of R3 as a hunchback was a direct and intentional jab at the Queen's chancellor.
Having seen Sir Ian McKellan in the role also didn't hurt my enjoyment of the scenes. As in even the most serious of the Bard's dramas, there are elements of frivolity, as when the actor Will Shakespeare first read's Romeo and Juliet and then pitches the "but soft, what light by yonder window breaks" bit at a saucy wench and then turns to Ben Johnson and proclaims that he is going to become the premier cocksman in all England.
In retrospect, while this tale has enough political intrigue on its own merit, it is the inclusion of the Shakespearian canon that really makes the film sing.
Of course if you aren't into the Bard then your reaction may of course be different - and yes, the script does lay on the reverence a bit too heavily, but brilliance is brilliance and I think anyone who values prose can certainly agree that there are wondrous passages of beauty within the Bard's canon.
There is a scene when Ben Johnson who the film reminds us, was the first poet laureate of England comes to the Earl of Oxford's death bed said Earl is the true author in this case and gushes how the Earls words are true masterpieces - similar to the Requiem scene in Amadeus where Solinari sits in awe as Mozart composes the piece totally in his head, without a keyboard present.
When the Earl's wife confronts him about continuing to write his plays which, in the protestant faith of his wife, is blasphemy , he explains that he is bewitched by characters who talk to him and it's only by writing of them and what they tell him that he may banish them for a spell.
Excuse my clumsy summation of this speech, but it is indeed truly beautiful and strikes a chord within any artist - they don't do what they do because they want to, but because they simply must.

Film Now Horrified by the failure of his plan for the succession, the expected execution of his son and the knowledge that he committed incest with his own mother, Edward nevertheless visits the Queen in a private audience to beg her to spare Henry.
Elizabeth agrees to spare Henry, but insists that Edward remain anonymous as the true author of "Shakespeare's" works. Henry is released while Essex is executed for his treason.
On his deathbed, Edward entrusts a parcel full of his writings to Ben to keep them out of the hands of the royal family. Ben at first refuses the task and confesses to Edward that he betrayed him to the Cecils.
In an unexpected heart-to-heart between the two playwrights, Edward admits that, whenever he had heard the applause for his plays, he had always known they were celebrating another man but that he had always wanted to gain Ben's approval, as he had been the only one to know that he had been the author of the plays.
Ben admits that he considers Edward to be the 'Soul of the Age' and promises to protect the plays and publish them when the time is right.
After Edward's death, Ben's interrogation ends when he tells Robert Cecil hears that the Rose has been destroyed by fire and he had hidden the plays inside.
As he is released, Robert instructs Ben to better Edward and wipe his memory from the world. Ben tells him that he would if he could but that it was impossible to do.
Miraculously, Ben finds the manuscripts where he hid them in the ruins of the Rose. At a performance of a "Shakespeare" play performed at court, James I remarks to a visibly unhappy Robert that he is an avid theatre goer.
Returning to the present day theatre, the narrator concludes the story by revealing the characters' fates: Robert Cecil remained the King's most trusted advisor, but never succeeded in banishing Edward's plays.
Shakespeare did not remain in London, but returned to his hometown of Stratford upon Avon where he spent his last remaining years as a businessman.
Ben would achieve his dream and became the first Poet Laureate , and would later write the introduction to the collected works purported to be authored by William Shakespeare.
Although the story ends with the fate of its characters, the narrator proclaims that the poet who wrote these works, whether it be Shakespeare or another, had not seen the end of their story, and that "his monument is ever-living, made not of stone but of verse, and it shall be remembered Screenwriter John Orloff Band of Brothers , A Mighty Heart became interested in the authorship debate after watching a Frontline programme about the controversy.
However, financing proved to be "a risky undertaking," according to director Roland Emmerich. In October , Emmerich stated, "It's very hard to get a movie like this made, and I want to make it in a certain way.
I've actually had this project for eight years. Emmerich noted he knew little of either Elizabethan history or the authorship question until he came across John Orloff 's script, after which he "steeped" himself in the various theories.
In a November interview, Emmerich said the heart of the movie is in the original title The Soul of the Age , and it revolved around three main characters: Ben Jonson , William Shakespeare, and the Earl of Oxford.
In a subsequent announcement in , Emmerich detailed the finalised plot line: . It's the Tudors on one side and the Cecils on the other, and in between [the two] is the Queen.
Through that story we tell how the plays written by the Earl of Oxford ended up labelled 'William Shakespeare'. Anonymous was the first motion picture to be shot with the new Arri Alexa camera, with most of the period backgrounds created and enhanced via new CGI technology.
These include a full-scale replica of London's imposing The Rose theatre. The site's critical consensus reads, "Roland Emmerich delivers his trademark visual and emotional bombast, but the more Anonymous stops and tries to convince the audience of its half-baked theory, the less convincing it becomes.
Rex Reed regards Anonymous as "one of the most exciting on-screen literary rows since Norman Mailer was beaten with a hammer ," and well worth the stamina required to sit out what is an otherwise exhausting film.
Not only Shakespeare's identity, but also that of Queen Elizabeth, the "Virgin Queen" is challenged by Orloff's script, which has her as "a randy piece of work who had many lovers and bore several children.
It boasts a cast of pure gold, and its "recreation of the Old Globe, the fame that brought ruin and dishonour to both Oxford and the money-grubbing Shakespeare, and the sacrifice of Oxford's own property and family fortune to write plays he believed in against a background of danger and violence make for a bloody good yarn, masterfully told, lushly appointed, slavishly researched and brilliantly acted.
Michael Phillips of the Chicago Tribune writes that the film is ridiculous but not dull. Displaying a "rollicking belief in its own nutty bombast" as "history is simultaneously being made up and rewritten," its best scenes are those of the candle-lit interiors caught by the Alexa digital camera on a lovely copper-and-honey-toned palette.
Roger Ebert finds Orloff's screenplay "ingenious," Emmerich's direction "precise", and the cast "memorable".
Though "profoundly mistaken", Anonymous is "a marvellous historical film," giving viewers "a splendid experience: the dialogue, the acting, the depiction of London, the lust, jealousy and intrigue.
Kirk Honeycutt ranked it as Emmerich's best film, with a superb cast of British actors, and a stunning digitally-enhanced recreation of London in Elizabethan times.
The film is "glorious fun as it grows increasingly implausible", for the plot "is all historical rubbish". Emmerich's problem, he argues, is that he was so intent on proving his credentials as a serious director that the film ended up "drowned in exposition".
Orloff's screenplay heavily confuses plotlines; the politics are retrofitted to suit the theory. The lead roles are "unengaging" but special mention is given to Edward Hogg's performance as Robert Cecil, and Vanessa Redgrave's role as Elizabeth.
Robert Koehler of Variety reads the film as an "illustrated argument" of an "aggressively promoted and more frequently debunked" theory, and finds it less interesting than the actors who play a role in, or endorse, it.
Narrative cogency is strained by the constant switches in time signature, and the imbroglio of Shakespeare and Jonson squabbling publicly over claims to authorship is both tiresome and "veers close to comedy"; indeed it is superfluous given Ifans's commanding and convincing acting as the "real" Shakespeare.
The supporting cast of actors is praised for fine performances, except for Spall's Shakespeare, who is "often so ridiculous that the 'Stratfordians' will feel doubly insulted.
Foerster's elegant widescreen lensing. The score, however, fails their standards. Kristopher Tapley champions the film, finding that Orloff has spun "a fascinating yarn".
Ifans gives a stunning performance, and Spall's Shakespeare provides delightful comic relief. The film is "gorgeous" and Tapley agrees with a colleague's judgement that "people will likely look back to Anonymous as the tipping point of what you can really do with digital in a next-level kind of way".
David Denby of The New Yorker writes of Emmerich's "preposterous fantasia", where confusion reigns as to which of the virgin queen's illegitimate children is Essex and which Southampton, and where it is not clear what the connection is between the plot to hide the authorship of the plays and the struggle to find a successor to the officially childless Elizabeth.
He concludes that, "The Oxford theory is ridiculous, yet the filmmakers go all the way with it, producing endless scenes of indecipherable court intrigue in dark, smoky rooms, and a fashion show of ruffs , farthingales , and halberds.
The more far-fetched the idea, it seems, the more strenuous the effort to pass it off as authentic. James Lileks of Star Tribune , noting favourable responses, including one where a critic wondered if Emmerich had anything to do with it, says the devious message must be that a shlock-merchant like Emmerich wasn't involved, but, like the film plot itself, must conceal the hand of some more experienced filmmaker , whose identity will be much debated for centuries to come.
The "blubbering" about the brilliance of Shakespeare's works is repetitive, and upstages the initial whiff of scandal, giving the impression that the film is "much ado about nothing".
Scott of The New York Times wrote that Anonymous is "a vulgar prank on the English literary tradition, a travesty of British history and a brutal insult to the human imagination".
Yet, a fine cast manages to "burnish even meretricious nonsense with craft and conviction", and one is "tempted to suspend disbelief, even if Mr.
Emmerich finally makes it impossible. Emmerich's CGI effects are well-done, but it is amazing just to watch an "actor on a bare wooden stage, using nothing but a sequence of words that make your scalp prickle.
Andrea Chase in Killer Movie Reviews rates Anonymous as "superb", dwelling on Orloff's rich script, which has "done an excellent job of fitting the known facts to the thesis on offer", on Emmerich's dramatic flair and the wonderful supporting cast.
It is somewhat spoiled by Ifans's leaden presence, which betrays nothing of "the ribald temper to be found in the plays. Louise Keller for Urban Cinefile admires the "thought-provoking scenario" of Orloff's "marvellous conspiracy story", though its "twists and turns" are headspinning: "anyone who can follow the first 30 minutes of the plot, must have been polishing the grey matter with advanced Sudoku : it's an unholy mess of complicated situations and jumps in time frame.
According to Brendan Bettinger, " Anonymous came out of Toronto with surprisingly positive early reviews for a Roland Emmerich picture.
We're committed to expanding it until it plays wide. Gessler and Sebastian T. In a trailer for the movie, Emmerich lists ten reasons why in his view Shakespeare did not write the plays attributed to him.
According to Sony Pictures, "The objective for our Anonymous program, as stated in the classroom literature, is 'to encourage critical thinking by challenging students to examine the theories about the authorship of Shakespeare's works and to formulate their own opinions.
Columbia University 's James Shapiro , in an interview with The Wall Street Journal  noted that according to an article in the same journal in , three U.
Scriptwriter John Orloff replied that Shapiro oversimplified the facts, since Justice Stevens later affirmed that he had had "lingering concerns" and "gnawing doubts" that Shakespeare might have been someone else, and that if the author was not Shakespeare, then there was a high probability he was Edward de Vere.
Emmerich complains of what he sees as the "arrogance of the literary establishment" to say: "We know it, we teach it, so shut the fuck up.
He [Shapiro] Just outright lying. It's bizarre. But they also have a lot to lose. He wrote a bestseller about William Shakespeare called "" which is one year in the life of this mine [ sic ] which is incredible to read when you all of a sudden realize where did he get all of this stuff from?
Emmerich is on record as believing that "everybody in the Stratfordian side is so pissed off because we've called them on their lies.
Screenwriter John Orloff argued that the film would reshape the way we read Shakespeare. Bert Fields , a lawyer who wrote a book about the authorship issue, thinks scholars may be missing the larger benefit that Anonymous provides — widespread appreciation of the Bard's work.
It isn't threatening anybody," Fields commented. But if anything, it makes the work more important. It focuses attention on the most important body of work in the English language.
In an interview with The Atlantic , scriptwriter John Orloff was asked, "In crafting your characters and the narrative, how were you able to find the right balance between historical fact, fiction, and speculation?
The Shakespeare histories are not really histories. They're dramas. He compresses time. He adds characters that have been dead by the time the events are occurring.
He'll invent characters out of whole cloth, like Falstaff in the history plays. First and foremost it's a drama, and just like Shakespeare we're creating drama.
Emmerich, when given examples of details that do not correspond to the facts, was reported as being more concerned with the mood of the film.
Emmerich also notes that Shakespeare was not concerned with historical accuracy, and argues that examining the inner truth of history was his objective.
Crace, in discussing the notion of Emmerich as a 'literary detective', comments that the director "has never knowingly let the facts get in the way of a good story.
The result is that "the very absence of surviving evidence proves the case. Tiffany Stern, professor of early modern drama at Oxford University , says that the film is fictional, and should be enjoyed as such.
Gordon McMullan, professor of English at King's College , says Shakespeare wrote the plays, and the idea he didn't is related to a conspiracy theory that coincides with the emergence of the detective genre.
For Orloff, criticisms by scholars that call the film fictional rather than factual are kneejerk reactions to the "academic subversion of normality".
In a pre-release interview, scriptwriter Orloff said that, with the exception of whether Shakespeare wrote the plays or not, "The movie is unbelievably historically accurate Obviously, in my movie, he didn't, so a lot of people will say that's not historically accurate and they are totally welcome to that opinion.
But, the world within the movie, that that story takes place in, is incredibly accurate, like the Essex Rebellion and the ages of the characters.
