The Mystery Of Edwin Drood [1993] [DVD]

Gareth Arnold (actor)
Gemma Craven (actor)
Format: all-region dvd (worldwide)
Runtime: 97 min
Quality: Vhs transfer

Filming Charles Dickens's unfinished novel presents two distinct, but equally difficult challenges: to capture the style of what is a decidedly atypical tome, and to devise a feasible finale. Sadly, despite having the original Rochester settings at his disposal, Timothy Forder fails to come close on either count, shooting the opening section with stuffy reverence with a stubbornly static camera before launching into a hand-held Hammer pastiche that lacks both imagination and credibility. With his fellow cast members seemingly unable to rouse themselves from their lethargy, Robert Powell's sinister performance takes on an unfortunate pantomimic quality.
