Goofs

The great Dan Leno first appeared on stage in 1884 - so he became popular in the late 1880s and 1890s. Karl Marx died in 1883, one year before Dan Leno first took to the stage. There could be no point in time when someone could meet both Karl Marx and a successful, popular Dan Leno. See more »

Went in blind with this one...made sure I never even seen an advert or a trailer..had a vague idea from the poster so off i went.

What I found was a mini masterpiece of great storytelling.

Wound into the weaving plot was a series of mini sub plots which at the time did not seem important or relevant...that is until the last 5 minutes.

Put me in mind of last years superb Sherlock Holmes movie ..

Very much a slow burner which almost burns out in the mid third but comes alive and keeps you guessing.

Everybody does a great job from crew to costume and direction is strong and stable.

The only issue I would have is it kept me thinking about ripper movies( From Hell mainly) and I didn't want that...but that's my only gripe. well worth a visit.
