Mr Turner – Mike Leigh Biopic – Movie Review

Hi Movie Goers,

Went virtual painting with Mr Turner this week at the cinema. A most enlightening experience.

Timothy Spall grunted and groaned – to great effect – all the way through it to my amusement, rendering a very intelligent and nuanced portrayal of the groundbreaking artist.

Some of the coastal scenes were particularly inspiring. Although slow and at times laborious, I had very little problem with this pacing.

All in all, superb characterization and all the supporting performances were excellent – especially the maid.

Michael Leigh’s Mr Turner scores very high on my scale. Check out the movie trailer below.
