Great Expectations

I would be more than happy to declare a moratorium on film adaptations of Charles Dickens’ novels. Lord knows that there’s an overabundance to chose from, and many of them don’t bring much new to the material. At least this one brings a series of painterly images that recall the old masters. It makes the roadrunner like pacing easier to swallow as it’s beautiful to stare at.   So are th... read more
