Contributing sentiments towards policy:

97% : In our era of absolutist leaders, it captures the tension between a despotism that is streamlined but inhumane and a democracy that is messy but fair.
94% : It's the kind of hi-tech game - simple, playful and slickly achieved - you expect of Québécois director Robert Lepage, here working with Ontario's Stratford festival.
94% : Excellently filmed by Barry Avrich, Lepage's witty production is all sliding widescreen oblongs, his setting a modern-day world of radio phone-ins, WhatsApp exchanges and wine bar meetings.
92% : Only a magnificent Lucy Peacock as Volumnia can silence him.
87% : Available online André Sills dominates the stage as a leader hungry for battle in Robert Lepage's up-to-date take on Shakespeare's tragedy André Sills makes his opening speech with his face projected on to a classical bust.
86% : In glacial greys, he holds a steady expression as he scorns the "dissentious rogues" of the common people.
72% : This is Coriolanus as Romanesque statue.
69% : By contrast, Sills dominates the stage as a leader with no instinct for forbearance.
63% : He's an easy man to be impressed by and an impossible man to like.
60% : His relationship with Graham Abbey as archenemy Aufidius is laced with the kind of homoeroticism you see between Sandra Oh and Jodie Comer in Killing Eve.
52% : After one conflict is over, he judders like a punch-drunk boxer; it could be post-traumatic stress disorder or a last moment of orgiastic frenzy for a man whose sexuality is sublimated by war.
40% : It's also right for Shakespeare's most marble-like hero, an unyielding patrician warrior, who sees compromise as weakness and negotiation an insult to his superior nature.
38% : Sills, when we see him in the flesh, plays this austere fighting machine with an alpha male authority.
29% : By rights we should side with Stephen Ouimette and Tom Rooney as the people's tribunes, but next to this broad-shouldered absolutist, they are weaselly middle managers, speaking truth but lacking flair.
19% : So low is their charisma that even the waiters ignore them.
18% : She manages to make her monstrous motherly ambition seem a reasonable preoccupation for the glamorous woman about town.
16% : She has enough political nous to know when her son has gone too far and the nerve to tell him.
6% : He looks ready to burst out of his shirt like the Incredible Hulk, hungering for battle as if nothing else had value.
