Let the Devil Wear Black

"OK"

Let the Devil Wear Black Review


Something's rotten yet again in this moody update to Hamlet, this time set in modern-day Los Angeles.

Stacy Title (The Last Supper) throws enough originality into the film to make it mildly worthwhile, and Jonathan Penner's dark prince (here the son of a nightclub owner) channels both Ethan Hawke and that mean guy from Dawson's Creek. Most priceless is Mary-Louise Parker's Ophelia, seen sampling dog food to let us know she's really nuts.

No joke.
