This play was written in 1604; new versions have been made into film with modern day altercations, for example, “O”, directed by Tim Blake Nelson. Each of these show similarities and differences.
Many of the themes shown in Shakespeare’s original play Othello use the same themes.and
The movie "O" shows a great deal of parallels to the book. Director Tim Blake Nelson stayed true to Shakespeare's original cast, plot, and sequence of events, but he set his movie in modern times. It takes place in a primarily white high school where Odin, playing the part of Othello, is a basketball star who leads his team to many victories. His right-hand-man, Michel (playing Cassio) is always there for him, helping in any way he can. Hugo plays the part of Iago. He shows a lot of jealousy towards Odin and Desi (playing Desdemona) being in a relationship as well as all of Odin's skills.
The characters that create this play show one theme all throughout this play, Deception and Illusion vs. Reality.
Iago says many things that show his racism clear as daylight. Iago refers to Othello as `thick-lips' and `sooty-bosom', also he calls him an assortment of animals including `an old black ram',...
