These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
YMMV: Titus Andronicus
Alternate Character Interpretation: It's possible partially to exonerate Tamora, on the grounds that her child (Alarbus) has been brutally killed after pleading for mercy. Her having Bassianus killed is tit for tat (seeNot So Different, below), and most of the other atrocities are committed by Aaron.
Big Lipped Alligator Moment: The movie is brimming with them. Some prime examples are the gypsy dance, Lavinia's rape flashback (which involved heavy metal music and gratuitous tigers), most of the orgy scenes, and the bit where Chiron dances on a pool table wearing enough leather to start his own BDSM colony.
Values Dissonance: This was one of Shakespeare's most popular plays during his lifetime and right afterward but has had the exact opposite reputation since then.
What an Idiot: Really, Saturninus? You think it's a good idea to marry a defeated enemy who has sworn revenge right in front of you and elevate her to empress? And then convict the two sons of the man responsible for her son's death based on one piece of evidence that this revenge-sworn Queen of the Goths gave you?
This is justified since Saturninus is portrayed though out the play as an arrogant dumbass.
Speaking of, why did it take everybody so long to give Lavinia a stick so she could scratch the names of her rapists out in the sand?
