LEGEND OF THE HOLY DRINKER REVIEWED
“Legend of the Holy Drinker” wants to play with a lot. A Distinguished Gentleman arrives in Paris and he changes the lives of those around him. The film wants to work as an allegory about how anyone can change. Still, it takes two hours and a lot of empty dialogue scenes to get that idea across. I love what the film wanted to be, but I can see the movie boring several audience members to tears.
