Dark and intriguing.

This was the first vehicle in which I remember seeing Jason Isaacs and his treatment of his character left a lasting impression on me. To me, it's a testament to his talent that he could make such an unpleasant individual sympathetic and, at times, vulnerable. As mentioned in an earlier crit, the unusual presentation of a drab and colourless sixties really creates an atmosphere of sordidity and the authentic sets added to this (...don't you just HATE it when you mumble under your breath '..and that wallpaper's wrong for the time too...'). The impressive cast guaranteed excellent performances all round but, for me, Isaacs took the gong. (I was particularly pleased to later discover he is a fellow Scouser!) Dangerous Lady is available on video at Amazon.co.uk. Buy it. It's good.
