Number of Times Seen – 1 (30 Dec 2014)
Brief Synopsis – Biopic of the eccentric 19th century British painter James Turner.
My Take on it – I have to admit that I’m not the biggest fan of ‘artsy’ films and this movie definitely fits that category.
I actually found this movie to be quite boring with the only redeeming factor being that Timothy Spall’s excellent acting job.
I know that there are many people who love these kind of films and I can appreciate how they could enjoy movies like this, but I just don’t.
Bottom Line -More of an artistic look at Turner’s later years than an interesting story. Was actually quite bored throughout eventhough I can see how some people would revel in this. Spall is of course excellent here.
Rating – BAFTA Worthy
