  • Conclusion: Anonymous never quite sorts itself out well enough to be of much value on a first viewing; it's complex to a fault and will leave many viewers uncertain of what they've watched or why they've watched it. On the other hand, the film is gorgeous, well made and nicely acted.

  • Summary: After his "Addiction Trilogy" which all centered on woman protags, underground helmer-writer-producer Todd Verow shifts gaze to male crotches with digi-filmed "Anonymous." Although occasionally witty, both pic and narcissistic hero grow tiresome over brief running time.

  • Summary: The King of Disaster directing a costume drama? It seems about as likely as David Lynch tackling a Katherine Heigl romantic-comedy and yet here we are with Emmerich trying to persuade us not only that Shakespeare was a cypher but also that the director can do more than just blow stuff up.

  • Excerpt: The identity of one of our greatest writers is scrutinised in "Anonymous", a tawdry tale of fiction staged as lusty historical drama. The audience is kept busy trying to work out who's who as the time-frame jumps into the past and back again, causing confusion when we try to match the older and...
