Phenomenal film. We need more films about cats
The Electrical Life of Louis Wain can’t quite live up to its magnetic subject, but it’s still a warm celebration of a renegade artist and revolutionary forbearer of the funny cat video.
Cumberbatch and Foy play beautifully together; the chemistry is palpable, and both performers know how to charm audiences without overselling the romance.
Boxily framed, the film tries out several visual looks, wandering tonally through its own aesthetic maze.
