The Madness of King George (1994)

Description
A meditation on power, and the metaphor of the body of state, based on the real episode of dementia experienced by George III (now suspected a victim of porphyria, a blood disorder). As he loses his senses, he becomes both more alive, and more politically marginalized, neither effect desirable to his Lieutenants, who jimmy the rules to avoid a challenge to regal authority, raising the question of who is really in charge.

Visually sumptuous, energetic and classy, The Madness of King George is British film theatre at its most seductive.

Vastly entertaining, with more bite than you expect from a costume drama.

Hawthorne is by turn outrageous and pathetic and imperious and poignant and very funny.

So slick, so clever and so incredibly lucid that it neither leads to much in the way of thought, discussion or, unfortunately, repeat viewing.

For those who, like myself, were disappointed in the play, the film contains pleasant surprises, all of them resulting from differences between the two arts.

In its own shambling, elliptical way it's an entertaining, memorable movie whose 2 1/2 hours go by without strain.

The battle of wills between these two strong men [George and Willis] is the centerpiece of the movie, and hugely entertaining.

Respectable actors aside, it's no more than a dryasdust history lesson.

Hytner's version of Bennett's comic-tragic drama of the tormented king who almost lost his mind confirms that power games, family scandals, and personal intrigues have always been integral to the British Crown, an institution both revered and reviled.

Flawless acting. Hawthorne was robbed of an Oscar. Sorry, but it's true.
