Critic Reviews for Set the Thames on Fire

All Critics (4) | Top Critics (1)

  • There are moments of Guy Maddin-esque vim - like the crayfish that draws tarot cards - but even cameos such as Noel Fielding's sex-pest lackey come over as try-hard in the absence of much higher purpose.

  • There are clever lines and inspired visuals - the film's saving graces - and a sense of offbeat aspiration, but sadly, the final product is as vague as London smog.

  • The whimsy almost suffocates, but it refreshes to see a new name armed with so many ideas.

  • It hardly helps that in seeking to channel their inner Withnail & I, Winder and Bennett struggle to register against their scene-stealing co-stars or that Al Joshua's loquaciously episodic script makes so few expository compromises.
