In Wagner & Me, English actor and raconteur Stephen Fry attempts to answer this question while exploring his own passion for history's most controversial composer. With the witty and charming Fry as our guide, this surprising film is a provocative yet enjoyable look at Wagner's life - and his 'stained' legacy.

I wonder how others can call this tripe "brilliant" or "exciting" as it is neither one. What we have is a long, drawn-out bit of pomposity by Fry wondering why he likes Wagner's... Read morePublished 16 months ago by Col William Russell
