Film Review: ‘Castles in the Sky’

25 June 2014 12:43 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

“Making the invisible visible” is the objective that Scottish physicist Robert Watson-Watt repeatedly claims to pursue in “Castles in the Sky.” It’s also what Gillies MacKinnon’s staid but affable biopic seeks to do for its human subject, placing a soft spotlight on a little-portrayed figure whose greatest innovation — radar technology — is so essential as to be easily taken for granted. Focusing on Watson-Watt’s collaboration with the British air ministry prior to the outbreak of the Second World War, this blandly crafted BBC production counts on star Eddie Izzard’s warm eccentricity to animate dry material; bound for television screens at home, the Edinburgh fest premiere will raise only modest ancillary airwaves elsewhere.

The film’s opening credit sequence, with its typewritten text and bloodstained archive images of Nazi activity, establishes that we’re very much in war-by-numbers territory here, and some distance from the sensory specificity of MacKinnon’s 1997 Wwi drama, »
