Satire: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
Transcript of Satire: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
what's the matter-
Guil: Exactly, it's a matter of asking
the right questions and giving away
as little as we can. It's a game. Guil: You had money in both hands.
Ros (embarrassed): Yes
Guil: Every time?
Guil: What's the point of that?
Ros (pathetic): I wanted to make you happy. Guil (turning on him furiously): Why
don't you say something original! No
wonder the whole thing is so stagnant!
You don't take me up on anything- you
just repeat it in a different order. Why do we need it? What is it? Plot Summary Do you want to play a game? Summary Showing events from the point of view of two minor characters from Hamlet, men who have no control over their destiny, this film examines fate and asks if we can ever really know what's going on? Are answers as important as the questions? Will Rosencrantz and Guildenstern (or Guildenstern and Rosencrantz) manage to discover the source of Hamlet's malaise as requested by the new king? Will the mysterious players who are strolling around the castle reveal the secrets they evidently know? And whose serve is it?

You don't have to worry about which way to go at all--the question doesn't arise, because you're on a boat, aren't you?
