Fifth about The Seventh

The Man Who Knew Infinity

The Man Who Knew InfinityThe Man Who Knew Infinity: there are stories that are important (those that open eyes for relevant issues) and stories that are good (those that are interesting, pleasing); the story told in Matthew Brown’s film has the potential to be both, but ends up being neither due to the way it’s told. The film is toothless, takes no risks and creates little reason for engagement with the characters. Jeremy Irons is solid in his role, but Dev Patel does not display the range his character calls for. The costume and production designs have a polished, edulcorated look; the cinematography of Larry Smith goes for a lighting that is too pretty and manufactured, and ends up looking amateurish.
