“The Sun is God!”, the last words of the great British artist JMW Turner. Mike Leigh brings his unique directorial style, and the airy cinematography of Dick Pope who recreates the “rain, steam, speed” of Turner’s paintings, to a superb evocation of the time and Turner’s life. Moreover, Spall is every bit the artist himself, always compelling, as described in a great review from Mark Kermode,

“…there are plenty of bursts of raucous laughter, most of them generated by Spall, whose ear for a well-timed line is as keen as his character’s eye for colourful detail. He may have spent two years learning to paint in preparation for this career-defining role, but what shines through is a lifetime spent mastering the full spectrum of the performer’s palette, all of which is employed in this awards-worthy portrait of a man wrestling light with his hands as if it were a physical element: tangible, malleable, corporeal.” (2 November 2014, The Observer)
