Bad Movie. This is what you get for watching a movie just because you know some actor, who became famous after the movie, is naked. I mean frontal. Having said that, if seeing a bad movie is not a problem for you, this is the movie to rent. Daniel Craig spends the entire flick in his underwear, and the bathtub frontal is candid. Keep reading.
The movie tells us the story of a famous Francis Bacon's affair and the work that resulted from it, the George Dyer portraits. Bacon is played by Derek Jacobi. Daniel Craig plays Bacon's boyfriend George Dyer. They meet while Dyer is trying to rob Bacon's place. Nice, huh? They are both crazy. You will not see Francis Bacon's work in the movie. How about that? So here's one of my favorites Dyer:
Bacon is one of my favorite painters. Dead on April 28, 1992, he was a genius. Like all geniuses, he was a wreck in his personal life and the movie flaunts it. Even though he was a genius, and an artist, I still think the light for the gays in the movie was negative. Hence the Shipwreck score. In the movie, gays are promiscuous, unreliable, gamblers, drug addicts, the works. Awful. The score is not lower because, again, all the crazy stuff usually goes along with geniality.
There were some cute moments:
