Rembrandt (1936)

A British biographical drama directed and produced by Alexander Korda, starring Charles Laughton.
The turbulent later life of the artist, Rembrandt is shown. He goes through a few wives and has constant financial troubles.
This was boring. Although historically accurate, the plot had too many filler scenes and there was really only one character. He was a static character. It was actually shot quite well. Everything was clearly visible and it featured some decent editing. The audio had some dead air hiss and crackle, but the dialogue was clear and the soundtrack was appropriate. Overall, it's just plain old. I rate this poor. It could have earned a better rating with a plot that was written better.
