It is rare that I find myself moved to display my fondness for a film or book through an online review, but i cannot help but feel as though some of the other reviewers (cough, the only other reviewer, cough) have been...well, silly. First of all, this is a FILM ADAPTATION of the classic John Osbourne play. A film adaptation is an adaption of a play for a film - this is why it is called a film adaptation of a play. Indeed, the original character of Jimmy Porter is 25, and perhaps Richard Burton looks a few years too old to suitably entice the viewer into this belief, but come along now! - he is a brilliant actor; a truly brilliant actor particularly in this production! Such anger! Such Fury! Such...well, Jimmy Porterism! To describe such a style of performance as 'wooden' is overly opiniative to say the least. To say the most, it is downright wrong. Please forgive me for being overly opinionative, but forgive yourself, mr. 1-star reviewer, for forgetting the subjectivity of such a matter! This film is brilliant - a well directed, beautifully shot and stunningly acted piece. Bravo! Pip Pip! Tally Ho! Oh, i'm 20 years old by the way.
