But I have watched “The Lion In Winter”. It is a British feature film from 1968 and stars Peter O’Toole and the incredible Katharine Hepburn. An incredible piece of cinematic story-telling. The eagle-eyed will notice a young Anthony Hopkins (decades before Hannibal Lecter). Initially the film seems to be about nothing, fuck-all and a bit pointless… and then within a few minutes the viewer is locked into a vicious closing net of intrigue and fear. Really great movie.
The Glenn Close – Patrick Stewart Amerikan TV remake is shit. A bit like the shit US remake of The Wicker Man. Utterly terrible.
