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.

  • dionysus67's rating of the film Mr. Turner

    Not really Mike Leigh's forte but as a conventional biopic that bombards the viewer with landscape shots that imitate the paintings, it is finely acted (Timothy Spall is as always up to the task) and has a convincingly authentic sense for Turner's era, historical and social. These virtues though cannot but make one wonder about what a film on Turner one would have hoped to see from an auteur like Watkins or Pialat...

  • Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film Mr. Turner

    Leigh gives us a portrait of Turner in miniature. A series of scenes, vignettes, fractured & fragmented; presented without context. These small close-up details of a life eventually collate; they create a broader picture when seen in totality. It works, at least intellectually; but the film doesn't live! Spall's grunting, snorting caricature of Turner is impenetrable; a blank canvas. More a sketch than a masterpiece.

  • Daniel S.'s rating of the film Mr. Turner

    Director Mike Leigh is interested in William Turner the Man and not in William Turner the Painter hence the title of this film. So we have a proletarian point of view here that may undoubtedly please a large part of the audience but not me I'm afraid. Not once in this movie Mike Leigh tried to explain or guess why William Turner was a genius. Already forgotten.

  • Matt Parks's rating of the film Mr. Turner

    Extraordinary painter lives ordinary life. Leigh isn't interesting in the process of Turner painting (most movies that try to do this are bad at it anyway) so much as he is in the idea of framing Turner's work in Turner's life.

  • smndvdcl's rating of the film Mr. Turner

    The early 19th century Britain, on the cusp of Victoria's reign, is captured gloriously by Leigh. Spall's eccentric characterisation of Turner is appropriate, his art which may have signalled the dawn of modernism is splendidly rendered, while his desire for a public rather than elitist audience for his art showcases his anarcho-socialist affectations. The narrative is incongruent but Leigh apologises to no-one.

  • Jason's rating of the film Mr. Turner

    Obviously if you are Mike Leigh and you go and make a heritage picture it had better be one hell of a heritage picture ... like Turner, for example. Definitely best early on when it is fiercely episodic and focused on magisterial peripheral moments. Once it starts to cohere into a kind of statement on a life it begins to falter. Dick Pope's work is exceptional in a way I cannot be alone in not having seen coming.

  • Jesse Furgurson's rating of the film Mr. Turner

    Not an immediate grabber for me, like some of Leigh's other movies are (though that first shot is gorgeous), but it gains complexity and emotional power as it trundles along. And the acting is phenobulous.

  • msmichel's rating of the film Mr. Turner

    Masterpiece. Ranking amongst the very best of Leigh this film captures its time, society, morality and humanity in a masterful and mature fashion. Spall's creation of Turner is a fierce portrayal of man and artist that reveals as much with a grunt as it does in word or body language.Casting is exceptional but the film is elevated by Dick Pope's cinematography which is as majestic as any painter's canvas. Incredible.
