 9. Othello

Hazlitt on Iago: He is an amateur of tragedy in real life; and instead of employing his invention on imaginary characters, or long-forgotten incidents, he takes the bolder and more desperate course of getting up his plot at home, casts the principal parts among his nearest friends and connections, and rehearses it in downright earnest, with steady nerves and unabated resolution.

Don't we wish we didn't know people like this in our lives.

You can watch the entirety of Orson Welles' Othello on youtube.
