Looking For Richard Script - Dialogue Transcript
Voila! Finally, the Looking For Richard script is here for all you quotes spouting fans of the Al Pacino movie about the making of Richard III.  This script is a transcript that was painstakingly transcribed using the screenplay and/or viewings of Looking For Richard. I know, I know, I still need to get the cast names in there and I'll be eternally tweaking it, so if you have any corrections, feel free to drop me a line. You won't hurt my feelings. Honest.

Swing on back to Drew's Script-O-Rama afterwards for more free movie scripts!

Looking For Richard Script
Our revels now are ended.

These our actors, as I foretold you...

... were all spirits

and are melted into air...

... into thin air.

And, like the baseless fabric

of this visión...

... the cloud-capp 'd towers...
... the gorgeous palaces...

... the solemn temples...
... the great globe itself...

... ye all which it inherit...

... shall dissolve...
... and, like this insubstantial pageant

faded...

... leave not a wisp behind.

We are such stuff

as dreams are made on...

... and our little life

is rounded with a sleep.

Who's gonna say, "Action"?

Should I say it, or should you?

- You wanna say it?

You can say it.

- I don't want to. Say it.

- You say it.

- And action!

- How do I look?
I can't see anything.

Are they out there?

This is my entrance.
Fuck.
I'm actually reading Richard III...

...and I can't get on with it.

I've been reading it for six months.

You want to do it

with your American accent?

We're getting $40 a day

and all the doughnuts we can eat.

Shakespeare? What the fuck

do you know about Shakespeare?

Arise, fair sun...

...and kill the envious moon.

Like eager droppings into milk,

it doth posset and curd.
Some are born great,

some achieve greatness...
...and some have greatness

thrust upon them.

Intelligence is hooked with language.
When we speak with no feeling,

we get nothing out of our society.

We should speak like Shakespeare.
We should introduce Shakespeare

into the academics.

You know why? Because then

the kids would have feelings.

- That's right.

- We have no feelings.
That's why it's easy for us

to shoot each other.

We don't feel for each other,

but if we were taught to feel...

...we wouldn't be so violent.

Shakespeare helps us?
He did more than help us.

He instructed us.
Hi. You gonna see the play tonight?
You're gonna see it, huh?
Hello.

How much it cost?

It's for free.

- Okay, I'm going.

- Okay.

- Thanks a lot.

- Your first Shakespeare play?
- Yeah.

- It'll be interesting. Give it a try.
- I saw Hamlet recently.

- How did you feel about it?

- Did you see it live? It what?

- It sucked.

- It what?

- It sucked. I saw it live.

- It sucked?

- Yeah.

Anything in Shakespeare that

made you think it's not close to you...

- ...or connected to you in any way?

- Yeah, it's boring.
A bank in England uses

Shakespeare as...
Cover my account number.

See, it's a hologram.

They use it as ID to prove

it's a real card.
What do you think of Shakespeare?
He's a great export.
Who's moving in on Shakespeare?

The Japanese.

Because they're kicking

the Americans' ass.

And they're all interested

in Shakespeare.

You know Shakespeare?

William Shakespeare?
I remember our English teacher

sent us to see...

...a local college production

of King Lear.

I went with my girlfriend...

...and after about minutes

of these people:
They were doing this kind
of Shakespearean acting.

I just tuned right out. We made out

in the back row and left at intermissión.

I was brought up in a school...

...where Shakespeare was taught

very kind of...
...straightforwardly and dully,

to be...
