Joanna Page in From Hell


Today's Joanna Page is From Hell, an impressively unpleasant and bad film, which is odd*, given that it was based on a graphic novel by the lovely Alan Moore, stars the equally lovely Johnny Depp and features the very lovely indeed Joanna Page. She plays a former prostitute trying to turn good for the sake of her baby. Which is... nice? Sigh. Where's Andrea Dworkin when you need her?

* Okay, it's about Jack the Ripper, so that should have been a clue. What's the fascination there, by the way? We're talking about a bloke who was really nasty to women. I'm not really sure he's worth dwelling on unless you're a criminal psychologist or a historian...
