An improbably exciting match of knife-edge storytelling and a florid vintage aesthetic best represented by Gabriel Yared's glorious orchestral score.

There's something compelling about Dolan's supreme self-confidence, even when misplaced. He takes risks - and that's attractive.

Ponderous, overwrought and more than a little pretentious, with a brooding self-seriousness that at times veers into camp.
