Anne of the Thousand Days

Richard Burton is all self-doubt and rage which I think was not his intent. Excellent costumes but the whole thing is lit at a ridiculously high level. John Colicos gives a supremely wicked Cromwell and Genevieve Bujold suitably spirited as Anne Boleyn. Irene Papas cast as Catherine of Aragon which was sheer genius.
I think I must be done with the Tudors for a while.
