Reviews for Bleak House

Review - Bleak House

Long — 7.5 hours — and bleak indeed. I don't think it was nearly as funny as the novel (which was one of my favorites), although the character of Bucket made me laugh almost every time he appeared. The acting was excellent and the sets were impressive, although the strange jumps that introduced various scenes were annoying and seemed out of tune with the rest of the movie.
