Twenty years ago this month, the Shakespeare-inspired 10 Things I Hate About You hit screens and so on this episode of The Big Picture Podcast FilmBuffOnline editor-in-chief Rich Drees and contributing editor Natasha Bogutzki take a look back at the film that helped launch the careers of Julia Stiles and Heath Ledger and examine why it stood out from the pack of films derived from the work of the Bard that seemed to be in vogue at the time. They also take a look at Steven Spielberg’s recent comments about what qualifications a movie should have to be considered for the Academy Awards and discuss if perhaps the iconic director is being a stick-in-the-mud in the face of changing technologies.
