Notebook Reviews: PANDAEMONIUM

Julien Temple – 2000

4 out of 5 stars

Julien Temple‘s Pandaemonium is a visually impressive and very watchable biopic charting the relationship between Samuel Coleridge and William Wordsworth. The cast impresses and both John Hannah and Linus Roach are very good – but Roach is the stand out. It’s hard to believe that he’s the son of Coronation Street’s Ken Barlow!

Pandaemonium has some great visual moments and strong production design, especially considering the limited budget. It’s a pity about the insertion of Power Stations and Aeroplanes.
