don't watch if you're not a Tory
28 August 2019 | by persistenceofvisionSee all my reviews

There are a lot of talented actors in this dramatization of the Hamilton scandal, but the bias on display was enough to make my blood boil. Mohammed Al-Fayed and his lawyer, the late George Carman QC, are represented as comically venal and corrupt, and Neil Hamilton (very much not as movie-star handsome as Charles Dance in real life) is portrayed as a great man brought low by a tragic flaw. The movie ends with a freeze-frame of Dance's face as the judge passes sentence, and a crash of dramatic music on the soundtrack, as if we're witnessing the fall of Caesar. Let's just say it helps to share Mr Hamilton's image of himself if you're going to watch this; personally I'd recommend "Mr White Goes to Westminster" instead.
