Users review: Immediately I noticed this film advertised as being directed by Mike Leigh, I checked the cast list of Mr Turner (Mr T) and noticed some familiar names he cast from the 1999 film Topsy Turvey (TT) – a biopic about Gilbert & Sullivan and specifically about how The Mikado was created by the famous lyricist and composer.So in Mr Turner we had Timothy Spall in the title role while in TT he played Richard Temple.The physical makeup appearance of Dorothy Atkinson as Hannah Danby was very different after 15 years having played Jessie Bond in TT.Martin Savage who played George Grossmith in TT played Benjamin Robert Haydon in Mr T.Finally Lesley Manville – Lucy Gilbert in TT surprisingly played a scientist Mary Somerville in Mr T.This appears to be a coterie of some of Mike Leighs favourite actors.Other directors like Mel Brooks similarly cast favourite actors in their films.I learnt that Timothy Spall took two years in developing his characterisation of Joseph Mallord William Turner and that a real artist was engaged in giving him lessons in Turners art technique.Being an amateur artist myself I would have liked to see more shots of him painting though rather than grunting.There is always a dichotomy between the arts when a biopic is produced in how much screen time you give to the central characters discipline and how much to acting out their life.In this case the producer has to cater for cinema goers who do not know about Turner and his art.Other Victorian notables who appeared in Mr Turner were Queen Victoria & Prince Albert, The art critic John Ruskin & John Constable (James Fleet).I also noticed a painting by Dante Gabriel Rossetti who often used Elizabeth Siddall as his model, since the pre-Raphaelite movement was beginning towards the end of Turners life.References to Railways, The Great Exhibition of 1851 added a topical scientific & dramatic flavour.Most of Turners most popular paintings were on display, most notably The Fighting Temeraire, Steam Fire & Air and Slave Ship Throwing Slaves (in a storm into the waves).I attended with my wife in one of the first viewings of Mr Turner when it went on general release on 1/11/14.I enjoyed TT a little more since this film of Mike Leigh had the additional joy of hearing G&S and I therefore gave Mr T 7/10 and TT 8/10.
