John Webster's play "The Duchess of Malfi" was first performed in 1614 at the Globe Theatre in London, and first published in 1623. The onscreen credits simply list the title followed by the author's name, and omit the word "play". See more »
This is meaningless, self-indulgent crap. I actually considered giving up on this after about 10 minutes but decided that as the cast was excellent and the director had a good track record it would turn out OK in the end. How wrong could I have been. There is nothing in this film which I could pick out as worthwhile. I'm sure some "art house' types will claim it is a masterpiece but IMHO this is the worst film made since The Boy Who Had Everything which has stuck in my mind for years as a waste of 90 minutes of my life.
