Is there anybody there?,
This review is from: In The Bleak Midwinter [VHS]  (VHS Tape)
This is getting tedious - and depressing.
1. Over a dozen reviews (and there would be more if it were better known) - all 100% favourable.
2. A film directed by one of Britain's best-known actors.
3. A stellar cast.
There are other cult classics - The Wrong Box springs to mind - for which their fans have waited many years for the release on DVD and for many of which they are still waiting and nobody seems to know why.
There are possible reasons:
1. It is directed by Kenneth Brannagh, who appears to be persona non grata to many of the Arts establishment.
2. It's insufficiently gloomy (- or pretentious, delete as required).
3. It wasn't made in America with an American director and Hollywood cast.
4. It isn't full of car-chases and/or special effects.
5. It doesn't end with 75% of the cast in body-bags.
...Or maybe it's under consideration by some American film studio who are thinking of bringing out a Hollywood version to rescue this boring bit of British tat and replace it with a real crowd-pleaser - just like they did with The Ladykillers and the Pink Panther.
In that case there really is a fate worse than death.
