The Libertine

It took a while to get back to The Libertine, but I've finally had occasion to see the movie and have nothing but praise for everything from the photography, to the script, to the direction, costume, and thankfully, the acting itself. I was not convinced that Johnny Depp could pull off Rochester, that most lurid rake and wit, but his spit was spot on, and he held his wink in check. Elizabeth Morton, whom I haven't seen since Woody Allen's Sweet & Lowdown, was stunning...why don't we see more of her?
