Tonight in HD: April 6

SoHo Highlight: The Sunset Limited (Sky 10, 8,30, 5.1) Samuel L Jackson, who also directed, and Tommy Lee Jones star in an HBO Films dramatisation of Cormac McCarthy’s play that explores the ongoing debate between belief and atheism, afterlife and nihilism, salvation and suicide. The Washington Post said it “more than overcomes the challenge of getting a satisfying piece of theatre to work on a TV screen” while Variety argued “the exercise isn’t entirely successful, but still proves eminently watchable, indeed almost hypnotic — something only HBO, frankly, would likely bring to the screen in such cerebral, uncompromising form”. But The Hollywood Reporter said: “All the early signs were right — this is an exercise in verbal gymnastics and no matter how famous the two leads are, it’s difficult to embrace their characters, because they have that air of stagey self-importance, as if the goal was to be viewed from seats in the distance, not welcomed into your living room.” (2011) ✮✮✮
