An exhausting, cathartic emotional experience.
19 May 2001 | by (Seattle, WA ~ USA) – See all my reviews

This is a minimalist filmed version of a "Look Back in Anger" production originally directed for the stage by Judi Dench. It may also be Kenneth Branagh's finest screen performance. For a full two hours, Branagh is Jimmy Porter, the man you want to hate but can't help loving. He is one of the educated lower class, burdened by ego and unfulfilled potential. He is also an urban lion with a huge heart and treacherous claws.
