The classic Shakespearean play about a murderously scheming king is staged in an alternative fascist England setting, superbly realised in the remastered southern landscapes: the Brighton Pavilion is turned into a seaside palace and the Armageddon of Bosworth Field is played out with Battersea Power Station as a backdrop.
A seamless, high-octane thriller of power and politics with brilliant performances from a stellar cast.
