Todd Luiso's Film of Tom Stoppard's 15-Minute Hamlet
Tom Stoppard's 15-Minute Hamlet (1976) begins with Shakespeare speaking a prologue made up of lines from Hamlet. This is followed by an "Encore," a Hamlet so abridged that it's easily performed in fifteen minutes.
Todd Luiso's 1995 film of the play reverses this arrangement, starting with the abridged Hamlet and ending with the prologue. The entire film takes fifteen minutes and uses the conceit that Shakespeare is making a Hamlet movie.
