...I will need to see that again. It was one of those films where you had to pay attention to follow the plot, but the projectionist has the aspect ratios so screwed up that we missed almost all the subtitles at the start setting up the film. Dialogue came from talking torsos for the first 30 minutes. Benedict Cumberbatch's face and body are long enough without them being comically skewed. Though, during one scene where he walks across the screen they were fiddling with the lens and they made him short and squat. It looked like something from the Ministry of Silly Walks. Half the audience left and we all got free passes at least.

I lost count of how often the projector lost focus.

Also distracting is that the only other times I've heard someone in a British Intelligence Op being referred to as 'Control' was in A Bit Of Fry and Laurie sketches. So, seeing Cumberbatch's overly elongated face filling the screen saying "I'm sorry to hear about Control" was comedy gold to a very small target audience of well, me and ... likely just me. I can't really be upset about the technical problems because I was choking with laughter at points.

The version I was was 30 minutes of surrealist comedy followed by an hour and a half of trying to figure out what was going on. The sets and suits were amazing, though.
