4.0 out of 5 stars good in its own way, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gormenghast [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
Like Lord of the Rings there will be those that love the books AND the filmed versions,those on the fence and those that love the books but hate the filmed versions.
As for Gormenghast,well im on the fence.
For its budget the BBC couldn't have done better,BUT,like some reviewers have already stated its the colour and lighting i can't marry with the books.It should have been darker and more Gothic in feel and not these Somewhere Over The Rainbow(OZ)colours.
A decent enough,albeit trimmed down version.
Funnily enough i think the BBC radio version featuring Freddie Jones and Sting as Steerpike was more in keeping with the essence and feel of Peakes original vision,and i believe the play was produced by Brian Sibley, who ofcourse devised the classic Lord of the Rings epic radio dramatisations.
