A very under-rated film......
4 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Through all the production problems in getting this film to the screen, Marcus Thompson has made a visual and entertaining feast!! This movie is a very brave attempt at bringing Thomas Middleton's play to the screen, in a contemporary mix of past and present. Given the said problems of getting this picture made..it is a great achievement. The dialogue, although modernised suites the contemporary feel...The cinematography by Rikki Butland is a pleasure and beautifully shot.

The music of Gary Moore is excellent and works well.

The only regret is not seeing the original version with the Hendrix soundtrack.....
