Hannah Sayer, UK Film Review

"In Maxime-Claude L’ Écuyer’s short film Squad Leader TD-73028 Soliloquy, Shakespeare’s famous soliloquy from Hamlet is reimagined within the weird and wacky context of the intergalactic universe of Star Wars. To celebrate both the 40th anniversary of Star Wars original release and the recent 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, the short film presents this soliloquy as the inner voice of a Stormtrooper.,,

Squad Leader TD-73028 Soliloquy demonstrates the way Shakespeare’s language is still relevant today, while also enforcing the power of language and how it can transport you, even sometimes to another galaxy entirely."
