Not so much a rake but more of a shovel.
4 December 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The Rake is a successful practising barrister living in a squalid flat near Kings X – he's divorced, seeing a prostitute regularly and has incurable addictions to drugs, alcohol and gambling. He's slept with his best friend's wife and facilitated his son's sexual affair with his teacher.

If you can leave all that aside and I can't, the Rake is quite entertaining and boasts guest stars of the calibre of Hugo Weaving, Sam Neil, Rhys Muldoon, Heather Mitchell and Lisa McCune. There is a pervasive silliness surrounding the entire production which, in my opinion, spoils the comedic elements rather than enhancing enjoyment of some of the better aspects of the plot machinations.

That aside, production values are quite superb and no doubt the Rake will appeal to viewers able to suspend disbelief and accept it for what it is - whatever that is! 7/10
