James McAvoy in another movie.


Recommended Posts

Hey, just saw White Teeth starring James McAvoy, it was an English movie. It was pretty good, for a PBS movie. It was kind of cool to see the Leto God Emperor as an Animal Activist with scrawny clothing. Well, that's it. Perhaps somebody else saw this?

The movie White Teeth, based on the book, premieres on Sunday night on PBS and concludes next Sunday, May 18. It's an ExxonMobil Masterpiece Theatre presentation (originally produced by Channel 4 in England), which means it comes with the unmistakable music, the sonorous introduction, and that word: "masterpiece." Phil Davis, Om Puri, and Naomie Harris star in it, and they pull off difficult roles beautifully. The adaptation is so subtle I had a hard time sorting out which parts of the novel had been omitted.

For all this, however, White Teeth still comes off as indifferent monotone
