"Now is the winter of our discontent..." With these timeless words, Duke Richard - lounging on his sun deck - sets his murderous plans in motion. His goal: to eliminate the hated rival Lancaster dynasty, and reign as undisputed king. Standing between him and the throne are his brothers Clarence and King Edward, his nephews the Princes, his bitter adversary Queen Elizabeth, and a host of enemies, rivals, and dubious allies. In the Los Angeles of "Shakespeare's Richard III", violence is the norm: every member of the nobility expects to kill or be killed, according to the code duel lo. They prefer death before dishonor. The women in this society are just as dangerous, courageous, and brutal as the men. The York and Lancaster families - rival branches of the former England Studios - exert a mafia-like control of the city and local politics/law enforcement. Aided by his sinister counselor Buckingham, Richard will stop at nothing - seduction, bribery, conspiracy, and wholesale slaughter - ... Written by Scott Anderson

I would love to review this movie...
3 June 2018 | by dpc69See all my reviews

But, I can't find it anywhere. Not for sale, for rent or to watch online. I can't even find a photo of the actor who directed, stars and adapted it for the screen, Scott Anderson. Is this a modern day lost treasure? Many of Hollywood's avant garde have roles: David Carradine (in one of his final roles), Sally Kirkland, Maria Conchita Alonso, Danny Trejo, Richard Tyson among others. Sounds like a great premise, modern day Los Angeles locale, crime drama. Was it a vanity project, a stinker, blackballed for some reason? Now I'm curious! Has anyone seen it? Where can I find it? Google won't give it up. Amazon doesn't have the blu-ray. Ebay? No way! What a mystery!!!
