The Synopsis for The Libertine (2004) 1080p

In 1660, with the return of Charles II to the English throne, theater, the visual arts, science and sexual promiscuity flourish. Thirteen years later, in the midst of political and economical problems, Charles II orders the return of his friend John Wilmot, aka the second Earl of Rochester, from exile back to London. John is a morally-corrupt drunkard and a debauched, cynical poet. When the King asks John to prepare a play for the French ambassador so as to please him, John meets the aspiring actress Elizabeth Barry in the playhouse and decides to make her into a great star. He falls in love with her and she becomes his mistress. During the presentation to the King and the French ambassador, John falls into disgrace with the court. When he is thirty-three years old and dying of syphilis and alcoholism, he converts to being a religious man.

The Reviews for The Libertine (2004) 1080p


WowReviewed bywaynestedmanVote: 10/10

Here is another one of those British Lottery funded historical pictures not to be missed. Depp is fantastically good in this piece of very careful historical film making, as opposed to Romantic films. Rupert Everett does the best ever Charles II, surpassing those fantastic actors who played the king in Forever Amber and Stage Beauty. Please watch for the Spaniel Scene, compare the dogs in this one with the dogs in the early films. Keep track of the wigs, too.

This version is much more realistic than Stage Beauty, but it is a close call.

Like Stage Beauty, it flopped in Paris. They like violent American cop films and weary eerie flicks and magical kid wizards trickery here these days. Stage Beauty lasted exactly one week and did not even go out to the small cinema houses after its week in the major theatres.

If you are interested in the subject of Charles II and the Restoration, you can still find copies of "Lord Rochester's Monkey," by Graham Greene, who wrote it in the thirties but decided to publish it much later. My copy, which I found at Amazon.Com, was published by Bodley Head in 1974. It is full of engravings and formal portraits from the Restoration era.

Excellent period piece with formidable acting & writingReviewed bysabreladyVote: 9/10

Familiar with the play & was curious to see the adaptation . Jeffreys expands his work effectively but several very direct elements will need edited of the more licentious behaviors of the period. Writing is witty and pungent and accurate in its representation of the period. Dunnsmore's direction is firm and the dark & smokey grey brown tones he uses work well for the film. Performance wise- Depp gives a Oscar worthy performance incredible in its range & depth. Malkovitch also holds the screen as King Charles , The actor's personal Maturity showing as both the heaviness of power & the indulgence of the character. Needs editing by about 20 mins ( it IS a work in progress) but other than that & some cleaning up technically of the sound in places ( esp the beginning) The work stands up excellently! Would recommend!

Powerful, repulsive, compelling, magnificentReviewed byfilmbuff2Vote: 10/10

This wasn't a glamorized period costume drama that Hollywood loves to overdo and it wasn't NC-17 for nothing! There was some technical roughness and lack of continuity but they were minor quibbles in what I considered a triumph. The mood, the sets and cinematography, the script and, most of all, the acting were all of the highest and most innovative caliber. Depp was in almost every scene and was fascinating beyond anything I'd ever experienced. His force and range of emotion and naturalness were exceptionally powerful and moving from first to last. You hated him and loved him, were repulsed by him and felt pity for him. You were drawn to him almost against your will, like a vortex pulling you in. All else paled in comparison. This was a Johnny Depp that I'd never seen before but so hope I have a chance to again. This performance is the crowning glory to date of his illustrious career and I see no limits to what he can accomplish in the future. Everyone else was uniformly excellent although Samantha Morton didn't portray the allure the Elizabeth Barry in the play had.

My primary recommendation for improving this work in progress before theatrical release center around clarifying motivations up front for why these people were the way they were. This could be done by a combination of edits and additions. I found I liked it even better and was more moved by it the second time I saw it when I wasn't concentrating as much on following the storyline.

This was a movie I loved and can't get it out of my mind. It was stunning and compelling beyond anything I've seen in a very long while.
