| Priceless bit of film making
Though not really my thing at all, the film was well structured.

Set Fire to the Stars tells the story of Dylan Thomas during his time with poet John Brinnin as he helped him in his spoken word tour.

Set Fire to the Stars attempts to be as intense as the artist that it's based on and portray a life that's both wild and sad. The type of story we'd expected about a 1950s poet I guess.

It can be amusing. Most appealing for artist who either think there Dylan Thomas or feel like John taking care of Dylan.

It's a very cool title, and it has cool art direction somewhere between fact and fiction that glamorizes the world of Dylan Thomas lives in, though Dylan is not that glamorous.

Very cool cinematography as well. the Black and white really sets the mood. Also loved how the music blended into it. The technical film aspects put you in the illusion that the movie really was made in 1952.

One really great highlight was when the actors recited the words of the writer's they play.

A pure motion painting that really captures the time period it's about.
