I’m shocked that this looks as horrible as it does, considering the foundation and the talent.  Maybe it’s just a terrible trailer or an odd style choice, but I really don’t like the modern military look, it throws me off and feels doubly strange when they use the text verbatim.  Three years ago, Eyre directed The Dresser, which was about Hopkins playing Lear on stage, and it was an incredible film; I almost wish he had simply stuck to that.
