Toronto Film Review: ‘The Limehouse Golem’

11 September 2016 11:13 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As busy and artificial as Victorian interior decor at its most excessive, “The Limehouse Golem” is similarly rather too much of a posh good thing. This adaptation of Peter Ackroyd’s 1994 novel “Dan Leno and the Limehouse Golem” (published in the U.S. as “The Trial of Elizabeth Cree”) is a baroque mixture of real historical personages, fictive figures, multi-tiered flashbacks and a two-pronged criminal intrigue encompassing both a domestic poisoning and grisly serial murders in 1880 London.

Juan Carlos Medina’s second feature (and first English-language one, after the 2012 European co-production “Insensibles”) sports nary a dull moment — there’s no time for them, nor for much in the way of the richer atmospherics and character detailing this material cries for. It’s hard not to wonder how much better the cluttered results might have played as a miniseries, particularly given that TV has excelled at just such ambitious mystery-driven genre mixups of late. »
