Mr. Holmes

I don't know if there was a topic discussing this  movie. I just watched it on Netflix and was very moved by the lead actor's rendering of Sherlock Holmes in his very old age. Poor man trying to solve one last case with his fleeting memory and terrible loneliness...

I cried like a baby to the last scenes. A very tender, gentle and in the end, sorrowful story.

Re: Mr. Holmes

I watched Mr. Holmes in the summer and indeed, the movie is beautifully filmed, with strong performance from Ian McKellern and very, very moving. But I found the outcome of the movie to be fairly positive, full of harmony and acceptance of life.... that was a very nice to see, they rarely make movies like that nowadays.


I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?
