As a storm gathers on a dark night, the romantic icons
of the English literati gather in Lord Byron's villa on the
shores of Lake Geneva to explore thier innermost fears. Wild
and drug-induced games lead the gathering into an evening
of sexual abandon and nightmarish hallucinations that result
in Marry Shelly finding the inspiration for her famous novel...
dear! Ken Lynch what were you thinking? While the idea behind
Gothic is promising - the night Mary Shelly gave birth to
the literary classic Frankenstein - the execution is
sloppy and so pretentious as to be laughable.
to the DIY Ken Lynch style of film making: Stick some animals
in the movie in odd surroundings (a fish slapping around in
a bird bath, a goat wandering around an old hall...) and the
critics can't possibly slate it as it is art! Stick in some
nudity, a laughably dull and incomprehensible plot (that when
you actually strip it down is very dull) and no one will see
what a pile of crap you're making.
acting in the last 20 minutes is appauling and the whole thing
really does feel like a fine art student's post-teen self
indulgent show piece. Robotic slaves, with a mind of their
own, free love practicised with abondonment, not to mention
a love their dare not speak it's name - what was Timothy Spall
thinking when he agreed to be in this movie?
is one of the most pathetic pieces of self-indulgent twaddle
I've ever had to sit through. Oh, and why did Lynch think
that getting his characters to deliver lines that he was so
desperate to make sound like Shakespeare had penned them?
