Star Wars Meets Shakespeare in This Hamlet-inspired Film Production
To be or not to be, that is the question that reverberates during the opening scene, while a Stormtrooper’s silhouette trespass across a barren landscape. The narrator uses dialog from Shakespeare’s Hamlet in the Squad Leader TD-73028 Soliloquy film by Tulp Films. The narration is voiced by Anton Golikov, who does a superb job at inflecting the emotions of the Stormtrooper that is excellently played by cosplayer David Blouin. It’s near perfection in showcasing the stormtrooper’s mood.
The trooper is lost in a desolate place and is apparently separated from his squad. The trooper appears to be shell-shocked and questioning his position as an Imperial Stormtrooper of The Galatic Empire. The desert landscape is the perfect backdrop of this film. The music is haunting and adds a special ambiance to the scenes. I’m a huge fan of film scores, so I recognize the importance of having a great score to support the film and its sequences. For example, as the trooper comes across what appears to be the remains of a fallen comrade, echoes of dying and remorse resonate with the trooper, while the soliloquy is recited over a melodic piece . . . “To die. To sleep. Perchance to dream.”
