Today, thanks to Mike Leigh’s deft and masterful vision, as if in a lucid astral plane dream spanning the spiral arms of time, I vicariously drank of William Turner’s very soul.  What a gloriously fitting work of cinematic art is Mr. Turner.  And what a rich artistic era, too, working with a cadre of giants like, John Constable et al.  More than that, thanks to his creative genius, Timothy Spall thoroughly ensouled his role; his truly was a masterful turn.  Joshua McGuire’s performance was riveting.
