Merchant of Venice and



Still on the road home. . .stopped last night hoping to watch a movie, but here in the mountains of North Carolina, found only basic cable. New discovery: This is a fantastic site! Download movies right onto your laptop and you have 24 hours to view. We loved it.

So we watched Merchant of Venice. Even the Penta-Posse was mesmerized. Al Pacino as Shylock is amazing. That role has such moral complexity that it would be so easy to make him a cartoon character. But Pacino humanzies Shylock and draws you into his hatred so that it is compelling and believable.

Well worth watching. Of course, it is Shakespeare!
