This drama, set in the 1960’s, examines the life of British painter Francis Bacon. One night when a burglar breaks into his house, instead of calling the police, Bacon invites him into bed. What follows is a torrid love affair as Bacon and his much younger burglar turned lover forge a strained, crazy relationship.
Daniel Craig plays the younger burglar with a vigor and fearlessness that would make James Bond proud. The two have some pretty intense love scenes including one that takes place in a bathtub. When Mr. Craig relaxes in the water we get a very clear full frontal view. The site of his British bazooka soaking in the warm tub will have you soaking in your own sweat. He looks fantastic without his clothes and we get several good shots of him.
At times disturbing, but very sexual and intense, this movie showcases one of the hottest actors working today at his skintastic finest before he was a household name.
