In many respects an admirable movie: scrupulously correct with regards to language and production design, and some truely gorgeous shots of landscapes that might have inspired Turner. Plus the Ruskin bits were pretty entertaining. But overall, one got the impression that Turner's life wasn't that interesting. I'd heard very good things about Timothy Spall's acting, and thought he was a lock for a best actor nomination. I was surprised when he didn't get one, but watching half the movie has satisfied me that no grave injustice was done. You can tell he's giving it his all, but the result is a bit on the hammy side. A bit too much Peter Pettigrew for someone who was actually a real person.

Mike Leighs neuer Film ist einer, der es einem schwer macht: Langsam, ziemlich grimmig, nicht leicht zu lieben.

Mr. Turner: "Ghhrrrr".

Timothy Spall crying in this movie is the funniest thing I've ever seen.

The story to Mr. Turner is about a British painter J.M.W. Turner (1775-1851). Profoundly affected by the death of his father, loved by a housekeeper he takes for granted and occasionally exploits sexually, he forms a close relationship with a seaside landlady with whom he eventually lives incognito in Chelsea, where he dies. Throughout this, he travels, paints, stays with the country aristocracy, visits brothels, is a popular if anarchic member of the Royal Academy of Arts, has himself strapped to the mast of a ship so that he can paint a snowstorm, and is both celebrated and reviled by the public and by royalty.

Let me just start off by saying that this movie isn't for everyone, I mean some people are going to...
