BlazeLime Strong and Moving!
Lucybespro It is a performances centric movie
Chirphymium It's entirely possible that sending the audience out feeling lousy was intentional
Freddie-6 After all the pre viewing hype I found this mini series to be not as good as I had hoped for.The story line was confusing and the acting left something to be desired.Lisa McCune in her first major role tried hard to be the heroine but she did not fit the part as a London cockney and her accent was false.However for an Aussie production it was quite good viewing and such series should be encouraged.
Philby-2 The Potato Factory is definitely true in style if not completely in content to the novel.It gives the typical Courtenay piecemeal character development, in stuttered episodic fashion, telling the same old story, with slight variations on locations, period characters etc. As I said, if you're a fan of Courtenay's work, you'll will no doubt love it.For me, I wish I watched the Graham Kennedy special which aired on the same night. 4 out of 10.
