Titus Andronicus - William Shakespeares Oldest Known Play

This version is a modern adaptation of William Shakespeares, Titus Andronicus, A Tale of Vendetta, this is Rated (R) 1999. Not for the Kiddies. Starring, Sir Anthony Hopkins and Jessica Lane, this movie was directed by Julie Taymor. Click photo to view trailer.

I am looking for a movie to rent. I have read the play, and watched different versions of this play. Is the violence in this movie worse then any of today's slasher movies, for example (My Bloody Valentine 3D)? Probably not. Titus Andronicus at least has a Plot, and a Moral. I have been looking forward to a more traditional adaptation of Titus Andronicus for the Big Screen. This movie has some big names.
