Insinuates, Seduces, and Terrorizes
21 April 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Love & Rage is a film set in post Parnell Ireland where a psychotic peasant and Irish Republican Brotherhood member Daniel Craig first insinuates himself into the household of wealthy divorcée Greta Sacchi. Then he seduces and terrorizes her. It's all based on a true incident.

That he's an IRB there is no doubt it's thought first that he's working for the cause. By becoming overseer of Sacchi's estate he can provide a hideout for weapons and people should they become persons of interest as suspected rebels. But it's clear soon enough that Craig has a psychotic agenda all his own.

The film is dominated by Daniel Craig who is both fascinating and repellent in a portrayal of pure evil. Being both British and a divorcée the locals aren't a great source of help for Sacchi. Her personal maid Valerie Edmond is maimed trying to help her and Sacchi herself is disfigured.

How it all end is for you to see the film for, but this one is a must for fans of the newest James Bond in an un Bond like role.
