Love Is the Devil: Study of a Portrait of Francis Bacon Photos

Movie Info

A biopic of noted painter Francis Bacon (Derek Jacobi), this film focuses on the artist's unlikely and tumultuous relationship with erstwhile thief George Dyer (Daniel Craig), who became Bacon's lover after a botched break-in. After the unique beginning to their love affair, the well-connected and volatile artist assimilates Dyer into his circle of eccentric and often cold friends, including the caustic Muriel Belcher (Tilda Swinton), as Dyer's struggle with addiction strains their bond.

Audience Reviews for Love Is the Devil: Study of a Portrait of Francis Bacon

  • May 08, 2009
    "...we all have nightmares. They can't be as horrific as life." Deep, dark and unsettling. An artful obliteration of the line between genius and madness.

    as dark & twisted as some of Bacon's works. surprising to see an early and vulnerable performance from Craig. this movie doesn't sugar coat what a bastard Bacon was, and for that it gains points with me. i'd still love to see a more all-encompassing biopic on Bacon.
