Thomas fans with an appetite for endless scenes of hearty romping featuring regrettably song-prone villagers will have little cause for complaint, but commercial potential will be otherwise restricted beyond the film's home turf.
Where the words power ahead, unbowed by time, the images - here either manic and gurning, or hamstrung by their poverty-row origins - simply cower in their wake.
Adding images can only stifle the play's poetic power.
Allen's film comes across as a kind of fast-moving fever-dream - appropriately enough, given the swelling tide of fantasy that Thomas instils in the drama: everyone, and everything, is operating through a sweaty film of lust or delusion.
This 2015 version of Under Milk Wood with Rhys Ifans taking on both the role of the narrator and Captain Cat is in a word captivating.
There's lots to enjoy here -- but the story becomes a slog and is for Thomas-lovers only.
Welsh hats should be doffed at Rhys Ifans for producing, voicing and starring in this brave second attempt to bring Dylan Thomas's radio "play for voices" to the big screen.
[The film] has been entered for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar - good luck to them, but British cinema has been better represented. So, for that matter, has Dylan Thomas.
Essentially a plotless series of vignettes, linked together as a sort of fever dream of filth, fornication and surreal humour.
Relentlessly hearty and doggedly committed to Rabelaisian rumpy pumpy, the film feels at times like an anarchic, over-vitaminised community project.
It may not be the recommendation that [Kevin Allen] is looking for but this is a film you can watch with your eyes closed and still enjoy.
It all feels very much like an act of pure literary homage rather than giving any clue as to what the piece has to say about the here and the now. Plus, there's just no drama to it.
