The Lost King

I love High Fidelity, it’s one of those comfort films I’ll stick on now and then if I want to smile. Seeing that Stephen Frears had directed this, I thought why not see if it’s anything near his other work that I hold in such high regard? Even if the subject matter is something I’d struggle to care less about.

Good grief, what a mess. I had to walk out for fear of High Fidelity getting secondhand ick. What I expected was a simple, inoffensive British film about a woman stumbling across the lost body of a former monarch in a midlands car park. What I got was a sort of buffet of reasons why this woman might have related to him, complete with a recurring apparition.
