News & Interviews for Mister Johnson
Critic Reviews for Mister Johnson
Beresford, adapting Joyce Cary's 1939 novel, looks at the psychological relationships inherent in colonialism with some subtlety.
Beresford and writer William Boyd have delivered a film strangely devoid of emotion and lacking a clear point of view.
The film works well as far as it goes, but some of the story's emotional power is denatured or lost.
No great friend of colonialism, Beresford makes his point without losing sight of either history or its mostly unsung heroes.
Although this colonial satire has intelligent aims, it's always a degree or two off the mark.
