Review: 'Wagner & Me'

By December 3, 2012

Follow me on:

Filmmaker Patrick McGrady's documentary primer about Richard Wagner stars popular BBC presenter Stephen Fry as an enthusiastic tour guide to the life, times, locations and music of the highly acclaimed but controversial German composer.

Fry is clearly obsessed with Wagner, but is his love and appreciation for the maestro blighted by Wagner's blatant antisemitism? And is central character in this music documentary really Wagner, or is it the presenter referred to as 'Me?'

The film opens in limited release on December 7, 2012. Read my full review.
