Fascinating story but almost all untrue
10 June 2000 | by (Houston Texas) – See all my reviews

After seeing on video this extraordinary schizo biopic I accessed the Peter Warlock home page and found that except for his death by "gas poisoning" (which was not declared to be suicide) there is very little truth in the film. Including the music. Only one song in the film was actually written by Warlock - the rest of Warlock's music was written for the film. There was no secret of Warlock's identity and he apparently he did not review his own music. But there is a splendid performance by Jeremy Northam and the sets and costumes are great. Just don't believe the story.
