This is the first Peter Greenaway film I've seen, even though for a while now he's been one of those filmmakers I knew I would love (based just on seeing stills from his films). So I was a bit nervous to watch one of his films in case he wasn't as great as I'd already made him in my mind! Fortunately, that did not happen, and I really loved this film. It disturbed me in a way I've not experienced before, and Michael Gambon's character is surely one of the most loathsome in film history, but brilliantly played. Looking forward to watching The Draughtsman's Contract next.
I'm not very good at reviews but I just want to say a few words about this masterpiece of a film.
There's a reason I consider this my favourite film of all time, and seeing it today in the cinema (for the first time) brought back a lot of memories for me. There weren't many of us in the cinema, which is slightly disappointing because I'm really enjoying Disney re-releases and if they're not doing well at the box office…
