    Hey!
    There was a film I saw, early 80's... directed by Paul Mazursky that adapted Shakespeare's Tempest. Wonderfully funny, quirky film. Starred John Cassavetes and Susan Sarandon, a very young Molly Ringwall. And, of course, had an incredible Raul Julia as the goatherder...
    Anyone ever heard of this going to DVD? Or even have an old LD for sale?

    I remember the film. Very unusual. I'd be interested in seeing it again, but I haven't heard anything about a DVD release. I don't recall ever seeing it on LD.

    Peter Greenaway did indeed make a film entitled Prospero's Books, which, like Mazursky's Tempest, was inspired by Shakespeare's The Tempest. Otherwise, the two films don't have much in common.
