Richard III is a mythological character, he lives in our soul like Falstaff, Hamlet - and the other immortals. This hallucinatory character is a horror comedian of history. An elementary player. In a world that can no longer be interpreted morally, a thinking creature decides to become a "villain." But let's be honest: by making this decision he manifests an extraordinary freedom, which makes us dizzy, because he has fulfilled our hope that man is capable of anything, he is omnipotent. We are all guilty and innocent at the same time. What decision can we make in this situation? Richard is a bone marrow bastard, so he's the only truly modern man.
