Look Back in Anger

Tony Richardson Marea Britanie, 1959

Lewis Taylor's rating of the film Priveste inapoi cu manie

Fear the wrath of a willing able man hamstrung by his own loathsome charms, consumed by contempt for the leisure-seeking classes. Sleek squirrels they may be. Worker bees they are not. Richardson's approach to the British class divide resonates louder than ever. Thanks to Burton's incandescent performance, the film has lost none of its fever and fury over the years.
