As Iago, McKellen gives a riveting performance, recorded primarily through close-ups that capture his developing paranoia or through framing that stresses his omnipresent voyeurism—as when, entering Desdemona’s bedroom for the first time, he maps it with a furtive glance, fixing its geography as though to give his fantasies a local habitation. Brother, father, valet, mother-hen, his military discipline takes form as obsessive tidiness: straightening papers, adjusting Roderigo’s collar, mixing the brew that will make Cassio drunk (and cleaning up after him), saving cigarette stubs in a little silver box, he seems indispensable to the garrison’s domestic order.

16 Reflecting on the production as it moved into film, Suzman writes: “Not even Paul Robeson, I imagined, could have said ‘Rude am I in my speech,’ and be entirely believed. In the event, it gave John an innocence, a sense of struggle, that a more Promethean actor, at home in the tongue, couldn’t possibly achieve. Better still, it gave him a mystery, an unknowable past, that would attract Desdemona and worry the hell out of most whites” (1988a:49). Yet however politically astute Suzman may be about energizing Kani’s black body, and its “native” identity, so as to trouble white spectators, she herself speaks a curiously conflicted language that, if not entirely accepting the text’s (racist) dictates, pulls in terms—“innocence,” mystery,” “an unknowable past”—common to British colonialist discourse about Africa and especially prominent in Conrad’s Heart of Darkness.
