A dark and beautiful film
2 June 2002 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

King Lear set in gangster Liverpool. Dark, with a blue hue, this film wrenches you with anxiety as the characters struggle. The acting performances do not betray the inspired direction and cinematography.

Do not miss this film.
