    A fascinating observation by Gramsci: the French Revolution was the Reformation + the Renaissance. It is worth speculating (so long as we accept there is no definitive conclusion) whether a popular movement could have been harnessed to a superior worldview in medieval Italy or Germany. It wasn't, and the class struggle set both countries (and the rest of Europe) back for centuries. We're quite possibly paying a similar price for Stalinism today.

    It was a bit like The Tudors meet Dexter then? Bit disappointed to see Neil Jordan's and David Leland's…and John Maybury's names on this (Jon Amiel's just makes me do a little sad face)

    If you'd told me, 20 years ago, this is what these firebrand directors would end up doing….I'd actually probably have gone "Borgias-cool!" More innocent times

    At least it looks good and isn't about lawyers/detectives. Maybe it will give them the clout to make their own….who am I kidding. At least they're not starving. I'll put off watching Mona Lisa for a while
