The Libertine 2006

Johnny Depp stars in "The Libertine" as the scandalously decadent John Wilmot, the second Earl of Rochester. The film follows the Earl's adventures in London, from his passionate romance with a young actress, Elizabeth Barry, to the writing of a scurrilous play which blisteringly and bawdily lampoons the very monarch who commissioned it, Charles II, leading to the Earl's banishment and eventual downfall. Laurence Dunmore makes an assured directorial debut, creating a period atmosphere that combines the dark debauched underbelly of London with the allure and glamour of the Restoration court.

He is quite...

The Libertine Movie Review by Jarrod (12/31/2006)

John Wilmot tells us at the beginning of the Libertine that we will not like him, and he is certainly right about that. He is a destestable pervert, a selfish and insolent womanizer, a drunkard, rebellious and profane simply because he enjoys it and because he thrives on controversy. In many ways, he is like the...

The Libertine Movie Review by Matthew (3/13/2006)

England, 1675. John Wilmot (Johnny Depp), the Earl of Rochester, finds his banishment lifted by King Charles II (John Malkovich). The King banished Wilmot a few months earlier for writing a poem critical of the Monarchy, but now Charles finds himself in a predicament. After fifteen years of increased personal, sexual and...

The Libertine Movie Review by Scott (3/11/2006)

"The Libertine" is a dark wonderfully acted character study that very few will be able to appreciate.

Going into "The Libertine" earlier today, I did not know what to expect of the film. What I did expect was an empty theater with only a few other people and myself because I have never seen any form of advertising for it....
