This review is from: Fantabulosa! - The Kenneth Williams Story [DVD]  (DVD)
Compares very favourably with a wonderful radio biographical dramatisation I heard some years ago; an unadorned portrait of a man seemingly trapped within a body, sexual orientation and intellectual environment all of which he variously despised.
Funny, deeply personal, unsentimental, Sheen paints a picture of a man who could charm and annoy, entertain and exasperate in equal measure. Never feeling much part of this world, Williams left it leaving a warm memory but ultimately little of any real depth, something at which I fear he would ironically have sneered in his inimitably cynical manner.
Sheen is one of the acting world's great chameleons but he imbues his roles with his own character and energy; fascinating stuff
