There is little debauchery to be had in Laurence Dunmore's adaptation of The Libertine. In fact, hedonism has never looked so bleak. show more
If your idea of a good time is watching a disjointed period piece featuring a scrawny dog defecating, dozens of dissipated people fornicating and a syphilitic Johnny Depp with oozing pustules on his face, The Libertine may be just the movie for you. show more

Unique opening and end - Depp's character seems to speak to you directly - he challenges you from the opening moments of the film and warns that you will not like him - until the end when he asks, in essence, if you are able to forgive all his actions. This was a great role for Depp - don't know who could have mastered this film better!
