3.0 out of 5 stars The Great Beast would not be impressed..., March 16, 2009
This review is from: Crowley (DVD)
Full marks to Bruce Dickinson for making a feature film on Crowley, but it is tacky. Simon Callow puts in a brilliant performance as a character based on Crowley. There are some funny plays on words which Crowley readers will enjoy, like the ZX 93 computer, Haddo being a Crowley nom de plume, etc.

Crowley wasn't quite that beastly and although he loved to dress up in weird costumes, I don't think his tastes stretched to that appalling pink suit! I don't recall that ever peed of his audience or left excrement as a calling card.

All very amusing in a Hammer horror sort of way, but don't expect a serious portrayal of the Master Therion.

Crowley loved to shock calling himself the Beast 666 and playing out being 'the wickedest man in the world!'
So he would have loved the film and if you read the book of the film his ideas are expanded there. And dont forget this is a man who thinks he is the resurrected Crowley! You see the real Crowley die at the beginning of the film - just as in 'Monty Python's, Life of Brian' - Brian is not Jesus - You see Jesus born in the next stable. So in the film Haddo is not the Messiah he's just a very naughty boy. And by the way Crowley was alleged to have crapped on the sitting room floor of people he did not like.
