The Execution of Mary, Queen of Scots

Film Review by Dean Duncan May 27, 2015

Location, costumes (people standing around in the background, as usual), even a trick cut and a decapitation! Are we starting to leave behind primitive naiveté? Or, rather, the wonder of an infant medium, explored by sophisticated and intelligent adults?

It’s an advance, but it might not be progress.
