It is not entirely beyond the realms of reason why someone would want to remake the 1930 classic: the chance to do it in colour, make it more graphic, etc. So it is a little hard to understand why this has been done as a TV movie where a curious blanket of blandness settles across the whole enterprise. If anything, The original was much more graphic than this, much rawer, much more intense. The strength of the material pulls it through and Thomas is an engaging if rather inert lead but the bar was set too high for this to come anywhere near close.

a classic film finally released in hi def. But why not release the 2 & a half hour tv version which was shown by bbc 2 in 1986. Seems like a missed opportunity.
