See The Theatre Version Instead
20 January 2012 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Sus does not work as a film. Its pretty faithful to the play its based on - it should be as the screenplay is by Barrie Keefe who also wrote the play. However no adjustment has been made to accommodate for a film audience.

Because of this watching Sus is like watching a play, which would be great if you are sitting in a theatre.

The performances by Ralph Brown, Clint Dyer and Rafe Spall are totally solid and stand up, even allowing for the fact the script has dated badly since it was written in 1979.

But it just doesn't work as a film. It reminded me of the Plays For Today that used to be on BBC in the 1970's which were exactly that, filmed plays.

I wonder just who the film-makers thought they were making this for? There is nothing wrong with filming plays if the film-makers allow for the differences between the two mediums which this production does not.
