Beautifully shot but very dark. Not for sensitive kids.

Here is surely Polanski, even more than Twist, face to face with the disappointing paternal figures of his helpless childhood who, for whatever reason, couldn't protect or save him.

One of those movies that's sort of a hard sell for contemporary audiences, so unremittingly grim is its vision of society.

The performances are wonderful—Kingsley, especially—and the sets, costumes, and camerawork evoke a colorful period in English history.

The film is a noble failure, but I can't imagine anyone coming to it for the first time wanting to take their eyes off it given the visual splendor of this disc.
