Coriolanus and Gawain again (no snogging this time)

I see that the guy in my Coriolanus icon was in a film version of Hamlet made in 2003 with Gareth Thomas as Claudius. Has anyone seen it? The film is out of print (? - what do you say when its a DVD) according to Amazon, or I'd probably buy it. Never seen a Hamlet I didn't like. According to imdb the director died of a heart attack around the time the film was finished.

Meanwhile there is an interesting review by Frank Kermode of the Armitage translation of Gawain and the Green Knight in the London Review of Books this month. What do people think of Kermode? I know nothing but I liked his book on Shakespeare's language.
