This is most definately the most fantastic film I have ever seen. The set is so elabrate and the actors simply amazed me. Especially the young steerpike played by jonathan rhys meyers. He is truly magnificent in how he manages to make the viewer feel sympathy for him as he murders yet more innocents. Wonderful! Hide
