Love Is the Devil

Director/Writer:John Maybury
Strand Releasing; NR; 91 minutes
Release:10/98
Cast:Derek Jacobi, Daniel Craig, Tilda Swinton, Anne Lambton, Adrian Scarborough, Karl Johnson and Annabel Brooks

This biopic is more about Francis Bacon's sordid sex life than a study of a brilliant, self-absorbed artist. The film follows Bacon's affair with a young thief (Craig), highlighting how he brutally torments him. Love Is the Devil does not gloss over Bacon's personality flaws, yet it doesn't seem to get to the soul of the artist.
