I once heard Peter O'Toole say in an interview something like... "I act for free, they pay me the big bucks to wait." He may not be a patient man, but he is a great actor!
This film is stunning and it was good to see it again. You are simply mesmerized by the characters that Burton and O'Toole create here.
The script is fascinating as well, but it's watching these two masters at their craft perform that is simply spellbinding.
