He’s not a clown, he’s dying of syphilis. – The Libertine

I don’t recommend it.  While lots of historical figures did interesting things in unconventional ways, John Wilmot, Second Earl of Rochester included, not all of them can be passed of as entertainment.  I can’t even declare that this film “takes on a special relevence in the context of recent political events,” because it doesn’t.
