"Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson: Bloody inscription" Movie Review Essay & Film Analysis

The basis of a good detective is always drama. Without it, even the most subtle task worthy except that in place of the collection of chess problems. Fyodor, shaking a small volume of 'Crime and Punishment', however, would say that in a good drama based on the crime and the detective did not really need, but this is probably an extreme, which, fortunately, has not adhered to Arthur Conan Doyle when he wrote his Sherlock Holmes. Oh, he understands that even the great detective do not hook the reader, if it will solve the puzzles, for which no real people are. Perhaps he was right, because Sherlock Holmes to our time had multiplied almost more than was written about him stories.
New Sherlock as kids, sports underfoot amuse his eccentric antics, operate with tricky terms like 'a highly sociopath 'and rush back and forth much more energetic than I could imagine create a Victorian detective Conan Doyle. With an eye on it, 'Sherlock Holmes', which began filming in 1979, Igor Maslennikov looks now more like a staid and prudent relative who's hard not to be respected, but it is already possible to not take into account the special.
funny that the first story of Conan Doyle Holmes - 'a Study in Scarlet' - became the basis of only the second in line to show the film, which has been selected for a much more 'criminal' name 'Bloody inscription'. Apparently, the director felt gloomy dramatic line is too rigid, and would prefer to start with a graceful, but pustovat riddles about "Speckled Band." However, the detective line, and in this film looks very promising: the corpse in an empty house, with blood on the wall is written: Revenge. Another thing is that the authors are not going to hide the fact that the killer - the gardener to the final picture. By the fifteenth minute we get a sketch, and in a quarter of an hour and see him personally. In general, the number of criminal clues left behind may cause wander in the fog of London patented unless such a klutz as Inspector Lestrade, who is clearly a comic character, it is unclear for what services still remain in employment. And then we go back to where you started, and the dramatic line gently picks up the detective, making the story of the investigation in a very non-trivial pattern of revenge, virtually the precepts of South Korean artists. Sherlock, of course, expected good (to be expected for the spectators, who are already acquainted with the detective in the first film, for readers as Conan Doyle such deductive talents must have been akin to divine revelation, but now is not about the reader), clinging scattered everywhere for clues, he easily enters the killer. However, the film is actually valuable to others: the history of a desperate man, who was looking for either revenge, or justice. It is this line smoothly goes forward, leaving Holmes, background sparkle deduction and remove bullets monogram on the wallpaper. With all due respect to his remarkable mind, of course.
in style Maslennikov tried to inherit Conan Doyle, and if the image kokainschika and rowdy Holmes was somewhat mitigated to a degree somewhat eccentric, but still true to the core of the British gentleman, in the atmosphere of the film it all turned out as a textbook. Petersburg and suburbs easily reincarnated in London, and the actors, if not in the British themselves, then, in any case, to the national presentation of the inhabitants of England the end of the XIX century. Now, in the age of a shaking camera, ragged assembly and smsok film looks a bit static, but it is in any frame does not lose self-esteem and style.
Story of a crime, the responsibility for which is equally bear killer and destiny. Some detectives sin too fanciful scenario crime, here it is not. The film completely into the atmosphere of books by Conan Doyle. Not outdated even for a day, just take off in a completely different style than the modern Holmes. So it is recommended to brew a cup of strong British tea, sit in a comfortable chair, and try to understand whether there is in the confusion of our age place for the classic British detective of the nineteenth century.
