Movie Reviews

Wilkie Collins fan
Mel Belle | Indianapolis, IN | 05/25/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Both of these films are intriguing British pieces. The Woman In White is perhaps slightly over-dramatized in this version, but the heart of the story is well captivated by the actors.

The Moonstone has long been a favorite mystery of mine, and this portrayal is rather brilliant.

It was a good purchase for those anglophiles that enjoy nothing better than a good British period movie."

"The Woman in White was excellent. The mystery was fascinating and kept us wondering up until the end about what was happening. The Moonstone was not bad, but it seemed more long and drawn out."
Excellent Purchase
J. S. Beardall | American Fork, UT, USA | 08/24/2008

"I purchased these items on DVD to replace items taped of PBS years previously. They were excellent then and are equally interesting now."
Splendid films

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Here are two of the best films ever presented on Masterpiece Theater. Everything about each is first class, although I slightly prefer The Woman in White. Yes, as critics have often noted, the films do not match entirely the novels by Wilkie Collins. But in themselves, one couldn't ask for finer performances at all levels.

One must add, however, that there might be a problem for some viewers. While keeping both films at two hours apiece, the filmmakers have sacrificed some clarity. The complex plots are explained in great haste near the end of each film, and many viewers who have not read Collins could be confused.

In any case, this is art and entertainment of the highest quality and should remind us today of the excellence available to us on PBS not more than a decade ago.
