Critic Reviews for Pandaemonium
Goes a long way toward capturing the compelling delirium of opium among a crowd of freethinking British iconoclasts.
Historically and dramatically dubious.
A harebrained, awkward, and dramatically muddled historical pageant.
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.
It's probably somewhat ironic that 'Pandaemonium' would have been far more appealing if its central characters were hoi-polloi poetic wannabes.
A watchable but silly biopic melodrama about the relationship between fellow romantic poets Samuel Taylor Coleridge (Linus Roache) and William Wordsworth (John Hannah)...
if one is to judge "Pandaemonium" on its own merits as a work of fiction, for the most part it succeeds.
Successfully gets to the heart of the obsessions that drive great writers -- and will have you dusting down your old school copy of the 'Lyrical Ballads'!
Well-intentioned and at the same time sadly indulgent as [Temple] modifies history to suit the MTV generation.
As a paean to the power of imagination, Pandaemonium is an impressive work.
As a visual counterpart to some of the most sublime verse ever written, it's often thrilling.
You Should Pay Nine Bucks to See This If: You liked Velvet Goldmine or Lisztomania.
A sensationally dreamy manifesto.
A vivid movie about Samuel Taylor Coleridge and William Wordsworth, our contemporaries.
The acting leads do well, especially Roache.
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.More
