More movies

I didn't know this, but they have made a new version of the Merchant of Venice (trailer at apple.com).

Stars Al Pacino as Shylock, Jeremy Irons, Joseph Fiennes, and Lynn Collins. Opens 29 Dec 04.

Official site (gratuitous use of Flash)

It will be curious to see how the play gets treated in this ultra-sensitive, politically-correct world. Even in the best of times, the play has had its critics and apologeits; the loonies that come flying out of the woodwork with an all-star-cast movie should be entertaining.

Interesting aside; there is an open-source stock trading program at Sourceforge call Venice.
