Jimmy McGovern - the new Shakespeare?

Recommended Posts

I think Jimmy McGovern is the modern Shakespeare. He writes very strong dramas, like the film 'Priest' and the drama series 'Cracker'.

 

Below you'll find one of my favourite scenes, written by Jimmy McGovern.

 

The main character has gambled away a lot of money, and doesn't know how to explain it to his wife. He decides to get his nose broken, so that he can tell her he was mugged.

 

This is how he does it (go to 6.30 to 7.40)

Is this not one of the greatest pieces of dialogue ever written...?

Shakespeare: "How do I love thee? Let me count the ways"

 

Modern Shakespeare: "Those pakis are gonna go apeshit"

You need to find one of Shakespeare's more violent lines, like 'Out vile jelly' when someone pokes someone else's eye out, in King Lear.

I might unblock Nick, as he seems to be raising a laugh. Not in the same way as CT, Deano, Gloomy etc, but a laugh all the same.

King Lear, p52.

Poetic.

Blocking makes little difference. You still see him and his topics in the forums.
