Default They All Love Jack by Bruce Robinson

At last!


They All Love Jack

by Bruce Robinson

0.0 of 5 stars 0.00 · rating details · 0 ratings · 1 review

The iconoclastic writer and director of the revered classic Withnail & I—“The funniest British film of all time” (Esquire)—returns to London in a decade-long examination of the most provocative murder investigation in British history, and finally solves the identity of the killer known as “Jack the Ripper”

It was a £10 bet that led Bruce Robinson to ten years of research. Robinson, the cult writer and filmmaker who last directed Johnny Depp in The Rum Diary, was researching an unsolved Victorian murder for a film project when he met an old friend who had become a Ripperologist. “Y’know,” the guy said, “There’s one case that will never, ever be solved.” And that’s all the motivation Robinson needed.

11 years later, a barn on Robinson’s property is filled to bursting with the artifacts of his research, and the makings of an epic work of nonfiction that identifies the most notorious criminal of the Victorian age. In a literary high-wire act reminiscent of both Hunter S. Thompson and Errol Morris, Bruce Robinson offers a radical reinterpretation of Jack the Ripper, contending that he was not the madman of common legend, but the vile manifestation of the Victorian Age’s moral bankruptcy.
Supported by primary sources and illustrated with 75 to 100 black and white photographs, this breathtaking work of cultural history dismisses the theories of previous “Ripperologists.” As Robinson persuasively makes clear with his unique brilliance, The Ripper was far from a poor resident of Whitechapel . . . his way was the way of life.
