"The music - literally - I mean the music and the thoughts and the concepts and the feelings have not been divorced from the words and in England you've had centuries when words are totally divorced from truth." Vanessa Redgrave

"In the midst of these noble concepts, these treaties and these diplomatic pacts, he was saying, the truth beneath all this is absolutely the opposite.

Shot over four years and paid for by Pacino, Looking for Richard is a documentary and a play. Searching for simple understanding of the pentameter and the very complicated truth. Mostly it's a story of language and what it meant then and now. Just a few years before this film was released in 1996, I was having a political argument with a brother in law. I told him to look up 'liberal' and 'conservative' in the dictionary and tell me which one he wanted to be. He told me, "Life's not the dictionary." It is here.
