Marat Sade DVD 1967: Patrick Magee, Ian Richardson DVD Synopsis and information:
"Dramatic power! Dazzling to experience!" -Time
Directed by Peter Brook and based on the Tony Award-winning play by Peter Weiss, this spellbinding tale of "slashing power and disturbance" (The Film Daily) bristles with the riveting energy and "excellent" (Variety) performances by the Royal Shakespeare Theatre Company, including Ian Richardson and Patrick Magee. Brimming with raving lunatics, cracking whips, catatonic seizures and even musical interludes Marat/Sade is an "exciting, overwhelming (and) stunning tour de force" (Boxoffice)!
When notorious social critic and inmate of Charenton's asylum for the insane the Marquis de Sade (Magee) stages a play about the murder of the French Revolution's Jean-Paul Marat, the production takes on an alarming life of its own. And as tempers flare, arguments rage and chaos engulfs both the sane and the mad, the inmates finally turn against their keepers in a brilliant, breathtaking and completely bizarre conclusion that will leave you raving for more! A very unusual film with a legendary performance by Patrick Magee.
Marat Sade DVD is a fascinating and unusual art film endeavor with musical elements and a feel of serious dramatic performance exploration and Patrick Magee is amazing.
