Huge (November)

Kenneth Branagh utilises Blenheim Palace to enact ‘Hamlet’. High ceilings and folding doors give formal dimension to over-reaching act and claustrophobic thought. Disparate motives leave bloodied bodies all over the parquet floor. We already know how it ends so let location be constant symbol. Now murder is on the Orient Express. The set is yet larger, huge, the Bulgarian alps during snowfall and landslide. Showering down in cinemas this November, the story moves ornately through upholstered carriages high above gorges. Window facets multi-mirror faces of the duplicitous. The body is bloodied from haphazard blows while the linen is perfectly flush.
