Vodzilla review of The Crucible

Vodzilla.co has given The Crucible on Screen 10/10 and says of Richard:

The cast heat things up quickly, led by a fiery performance from Richard Armitage. He throws himself into the middle of the auditorium as John Proctor, beginning the play commanding and confident.

Above the din rises Richard’s innocent man, sporting a ragged beard and dishevelled outfit that seems to fall apart in front of us. “What is John Proctor?” he cries to the heavens, his voice hoarse from the strain. It’s a colossal performance in a towering, timeless play that, thanks to Farber’s lack of fuss, feels even more relevant today. At three and half hours, The Crucible is a monumental piece of theatre. It’s a fortress – and there’s isn’t a single crack in it.
