Review of 'The Life and Times of Peter Sellers', director Stephen Hopkins and 'Open Water', director Chris Kentis

The Life and Times of Peter Sellers is an often ingenious and quirky biopic of a great comic actor who was definitely of the bad, mad and dangerous to know variety. It charts the life of this highly complex and neurotic actor from his times performing in the 1950s radio show The Goon Show, where, in his words, he was worried about ending up as a 'ringmaster in a circus of twits', to international stardom in the Pink Panther movies, where millions creased up to his dodgy impersonation of a hapless French detective.
