An exploration of the last quarter century of the great, if eccentric, British painter J.M.W. Turner’s life. —IMDB

I can understand why critics are giving this movie very high scores – high production values, good acting, nice photography. But, for me, MR TURNER was an absolutely boring 2 hours and 30 minutes. Watching a very unpleasant character communicating by grunting and growling like a pig wallowing in mud, treating women as objects for his own pleasure, spitting on canvases – Mr Turner was repulsive man. My advice is to admire his paintings and know as little as possible about the man. Watching this movie puts you at risk of forever contaminating your admiration for his work.
