The Interest of Convultion in Dramatic Plots
on 4 January 2012
Unfortunately I do not remember watching this particular progamme back in the nineteen nineties, which I find strange because I always watch "any" drama on the BBC, because usually it's worth watching. So seeing this particular DVD "State of Play" was for me a complete relevation. The plot/story was so interesting/exciting and engaging - pulling you in like a great novel. The acting of both David Morrisey & John Simm is both wonderful and exciting - they make their characters live and breathe - making them both incredible and fascinating to the viewer.
To me it isn't worth me giving a reader a plot summary - because my interpretation is mine alone, but only to say it involves "Political Power, and Prestige," something all politicians are scrambling to achieve - playing their weird games. State of Play is a thriller in its truest sense, and if you're like me and do enjoy thrillers then this is the DVD for you. Firstly the actors have to believable and credible - these actors are throughout - there's thrills and spills a plenty. Marvellous story and a thrilling finale. This is a very fine DVD, very cheap and worth double the price, so buy it now - you wont be disatisified. Terrific sometimes an over used word, but not in this case - buy it now because you need this excellent DVD!
