unusually dark television
22 January 2001 | by See all my reviews

A really good film noir style mini-series covering subjects that aren't normally treated on TV, at least not so unsaccharin as this. The two leads are really top-notch and Jason Isaccs especially good as an icy, over-restrained psychopath. He manages at the same time to give the character tremendous sympathy - not easy when you're a brutal gangster. The period is also caught unusually well, catching the drabness of the sixties in Britain, instead of portraying it as a really hip time when everyone wore psychedelic clothes and sung Beatles tunes. Highly recommended - I just wish that they would issue it on video. Distributors please take note!
