A Decent, Interesting Film!
5 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I never heard of Peter Warlock or Philip Heseltine but Jeremy Northam is a terrific actor. The script needs work but the film is a decent look at two personalities as different as Jekyll and Hyde. Warlock is a genius composer while Heseltine is a troubled music critic for the paper. In this film, there is a love story and the actress who plays his love interest does a memorable job in the role. The story is set before 1930 in England. The film tries to explain the sad life and madness that destroys the genius behind Warlock's brilliance. The love interest is the only one who seems genuinely concerned for his well-being while other characters seem to encourage his madness to produce genius. Sadly, his behavior is self-destructive to say the least.
