cosmology’s review published on Letterboxd:
This just really made me want to watch Les Misérables instead. I suppose I'm picky with musicals but I didn't like the atmosphere of this from the start. Very literally too dark and bland throughout. I wanted to be dragged in and fascinated and disgusted by this all, having no prior knowledge of the Broadway musical, but it never hit any right note in me. I also just don't want to hear Johnny Depp sing, sorry.
