Review of The Life and Death of Peter Sellers

what a disappointment this film was. not that it was that bad but i was expecting a whole lot better. why was i expecting so much, especially after being disappointed with virtually everything stephen hopkins directs, i don't know but i was. firstly i want to point out how good geoffrey rush is in this film. there are times when you think you are watching sellers himself. rush is by far the best part of this film and he is what elevates the film above and beyond the rest of it's faults. the rest of the cast delivers as well (and theron looks absolutely gorgeous) and the makeup and costumes are realistic for the decades and times they represent. where the film fails though is in it's execution of story (and it's rather strange cinematography that looks to digital, which is no good for a film set in the 60's and 70's.) the story is of course about peter sellers only the film jumps from moment to moment with no real sense of cohesion. it makes for a disjointed and uneffecting story and makes things kind of just float by. you never invest in the story as things jump from one moment to the next and then back in time and then forward and then a marriage and then a divorce and then a movie and then another movie and then death and then life and then and then and then. if it wasn't for rush i don't think i would of enjoyed this at all (and still even then not that much). he is the glue and the magic that helps the audience through this picture and i recommend it for him and him alone (okay fine and the sexy charlize theron). 65/100
