Day 25

Movie: Othello
Starring: Laurence Fishbourne, Kenneth Branach
Genre: Drama, Action, Romance,
Format: VHS

Plot:Othello has just been married in secret to Desdemona, and as he goes to set up a peace talk; Iago who is jealous has started to put into motion a plot to destroy them both.

Love, Lust, Betrayal. As all great dramas have a combination of these topics. 
It's also one of the most powerful stories I've ever come across.

You would almost think it should not be called "Othello"  but "Iago" for he seems to be in 95% of the movie, more scenes then even the title character seems to have.
I do however, love the way Iago breaks down the 4th wall and talks to the audience as he unfolds his plans.

What do I think I learned from this film?
Keep your friends close and your enemies closer and always remember that love is mightier then a sword but weaker then a whisper.
