Goes a long way toward capturing the compelling delirium of opium among a crowd of freethinking British iconoclasts.

Historically and dramatically dubious.

Top Critic

A harebrained, awkward, and dramatically muddled historical pageant.

Top Critic

The exposition is thick, the characterization choppy, the wigs terrible.

The appeal will ... be restricted to art house audiences who don't mind people messing with their literary history.

Audience Reviews for Pandaemonium

A fanciful and atmospheric fantasy based loosely on the lives of Coleridge and Wordsworth - there's more than a hint of Schafer's Amadeus in this tale of tortured artists and jealousy. Great cast, beautifully shot and poetry of a kind both new and old as the script dovetails effortlessly with some of England's greatest romantic verse.
