    Visually stunning and well acted but not totally gripping. Too many loose scenes that go nowhere. I was mising a flow in the story and therefore becomes a bit boring and certainly overlong 2 years 5 months ago

    "Visually sublime" where the first words that popped into my head as I was pondering what to describe this film in short, as I was leaving the theater.

    Mr Turner is a rather unconventional biopic that focuses on episodes of the main characters life as a means to examine him as a person instead of constructing a narrative centered around him proving a point.

    Something I really enjoyed is how the plot seems to work in a more poetic manner rather than following the usual three act structure.

    I just can't get over the visual mastery that was being displayed both during interior and exterior scene's. Although the shooting of interior scene's could get rather dull on occasion. Pretty much the whole film is shot to evoke interior and exterior portraiture which worked to incredible effect!

    It took me a little while to get adjusted to the slower paste than I am used to, but after that I was completely taken away.

    One thing that really annoyed me was the uncomfortably loud and high pitched violin especially during the beginning.

    The entire cast is great with a special mention of course for Timothy Spall, him and the rest of the cast delivered very nuanced performances.

    Overall this is another one that goes up there among one of my favorite movies of 2014, even though I saw it in 2015.
