The film essentially asks the age-old question of how an artist can be so sensitive to the beauty of nature while also being so insensitive to the people around him. While it’s not likely that Leigh “identifies” with Turner in the manner of, say, Hayao Miyazaki and the artist-protagonist of THE WIND RISES, this is clearly a deeply felt work through which the filmmaker does convey personal feelings.

Though I would venture to guess that the seventy-one year-old Leigh finds something heroic in his subject’s adoption of an experimental “late style,” his own displays more serenity than the brio and boldness of Turner, who was reported to boast “I am the real lion. I am the great lion of the day.” The result is a decidedly earthbound tribute to an artist who kept his eyes on the sun.

Filmmaker Mike Leigh’s biography of the landscape painter J.M.W. Turner is what critics call “austere”—which means it’s slow and grim and deliberately hard to love—yet it’s fascinating, and the performances and photography are outstanding.
