10. 10. Hamlet

Shakespeare’s Hamlet has now been represented on the screen over 198 times with the most famous portrayal being from Kenneth Branagh in Hamlet 1996. Branagh managed to capture the essence of the indecisive prince by depicting a range of emotions before his inevitable descent into madness.
