| A visually surreal fantasy of lustful characters.
THE GUARDIAN **** With its energy and attack this is an Under Milk Wood that is funny and entertaining. Rhys Ifans has stepped bravely up to the plate for this hyperactive adaptation directed by Kevin Allen. A highly coloured fever dream.
THE TIMES ****
Part Carry On film, part surreal fantasy. How rarely does the cinema reverberate with meaty poetry like this ? As a fresh interpretation, Allen's comic effort stands alone.
THE INDEPENDENT ****
Allen successfully brings out the perversity, ghoulishness, eroticism, and surrealistic side of Thomas' masterpiece. It has a beguiling dreamlike quality.

I like it very much. It's lusty, romping, bawdy, fleshy and incredibly engaging a fabulous visualisation. I think it's a film, and I don't say this lightly, that shares something of the spirit of the great Ken Russell.
