Hyde Park on Hudson [DVD]
Hyde Park on Hudson [DVD]
Dvd ~ Bill Murray
Price: £2.99

2.0 out of 5 stars Insidious, 7 Dec 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Hyde Park on Hudson [DVD] (DVD)
Ok...hard to fault Bill Murray: he is great. The other actors are excellent and the events portrayed are believable and worth knowing.

BUT the F.D.R. Murray portrays is a grim person and you only really realise it by the end with the bitter taste left in your mouth by his use of his high office to seduce numerous women including his young cousin Daisy. And how this is dressed up by Bill Murray's easy bonhomie and his charm with the King of England... No wonder his wife, Eleanor, looked elsewhere. It explains I suppose the cavalier way in which he became pals with Uncle Joe and divided up Eastern Europe on the back of a bus ticket at Yalta.

I am not sure the film-makers wanted the audience to be thinking this though..... They (accidentally?) portray a revered US President as sexist, classist, & entitled, self-interested elder statesman .... and expect the viewer to find him a genial chap. ... And I am pro-American!

5.0 out of 5 stars extraordinary, 7 Dec 2014

What a revelation to see the communist world through such sympathetic eyes....gripping. it has an unusual tone and turn of phrase too.... this is not just the translation, as I speak German and can imagine the original.... much is written in the present tense, this lends realism & immediacy....and makes the reader feel such empathy for the various protagonists and their predicament of living in a world of double-speak.

what a disappointment after series 1 & 2 which were great. I have seen all 5 series and it gets steadily worse: melodramatic, unlikely & obvious plot twists.... Pity.
