Who cares if its deductions are accurate? Everyone's dead and we'll neverknow for certain. What matters is this story delivers you a culprit whichowing to the official unsolved status, I didnt believe I would see until thelast second. Very well done TV fare. If I have one criticism, it is thefilming quality. On the interior and set shots, the camera work and lightingcast those pinkish hues off of phony scrubbed brickwork that betray abacklot and might confuse you into thinking you are watching an old Gunsmokererun. But rest assured, the story is powerful enough to make this quiteinsubstantial for a normal person. The performances are excellent. MichaelCaine would be good doing tampon commercials, and the rest of the mostlyEnglish cast are all equally excellent. There are some truly frighteningsequences. Asante's conversion into Mr. Hyde is the stuff nightmares aremade of. The suspense at the climax deftly handled. Its quite long, anddrags only a bit 3/4 through. But this is well worth anyone's time who hasan interest in this most infamous of criminal investigations. Which puts itup just about everyone's alley doesnt it?

I hate to admit this, but I have always been fascinated with Jack theRipper. I have probably seen every movie and special about his crimes andhave read quite a few books as well. There have been many movies made on thecase (one was directed by Alfred Hitchcock). My favorite was an episode ofBoris Karloff's Thriller tv show called "Yours Truly Jack the Ripper". Itwas written by Robert Bloch the man who wrote Psycho. This miniseries was adelight to watch and Michael Caine gives a wonderful performance asInspector Abberline. They do a great job of re-creating the horrid livingconditions in the East End of London. The only let down for me was the waythis film ended. I wont give it away but I was hoping they would be originalabout who our boy Jack really was. Instead, the theory they propose is anold one and I feel it is preposterous. Other then that, this is a great filmand I wish that they would put it out on video.

Well, it's not perfect, but what is? This one is a cut above the othersI've seen, in some of which the victims were all &quot;dance hall girls&quot; orwhatever. I thought Michael Caine was a good as he usually is, which is tosay, pretty good. The other performances were also above average. (Ithought Lysette Anthony was Helena Bonham Carter grown inexplicably moremature with the receding years.) Armand Assante does a great job of turninginto Mr. Hyde on stage. Jane Seymour is beautiful but takes up screen timethat otherwise could be put to better use, granted that three and a halfhours constitutes a lot of screen time. A problem, though is that there aretoo many red herrings, too many dead ends gone into at length, at theexpense of more interesting material. Every theory dreamed up by any manquecriminologist with a pulp sensibility has been dragged into the story, andsome made up that have never before been proposed. (How about: Jack was analien from outer space?) I'd like to have known more details about thecases -- the sign about the &quot;Juwes&quot; and the bag of &quot;cashous&quot; found byNichols' body.<br><br>On the plus side, the crowded streets of 1888 London were colorfully evoked. The second murder took place in the small scruffy backyard of a tenement,next to a wooden fence, and to judge from the look of the scene theproduction designer worked directly from contemporary photographs. At leastone of the props, a horse-drawn trolley with a Nestle ad, showed upvirtually unchanged on Sherlock Holmes' Baker Street in the later JeremyBrett series. Of course this isn't the REAL city. The London of the timewould have been almost repellant as the lingering shots of the dismemberedbodies which are mercifully absent from this film. This wasindustrial-strength capitalism in its most untrammeled form. What wasglamorized as London &quot;fog&quot; we would nowadays call &quot;smog&quot; or simply&quot;industrial smoke.&quot; In the absence of toilets, Whitechapel would havesmelled like an outhouse. <br><br>Why did all those women go out alone at night? One reason may be similar tothe one than prompts people to live in large coastal cities in California. Oh, I know it's going to happen, but it won't happen to me. Another is thatthey may not have had much choice in the matter at a point in history withno social security or unemployment or medicare. If a man lost his arm atwork, he was fired and was out on the streets. If a woman with no skillsand no independent means lost her husband, she was out on the streets too,wearing the signature apron of her trade. For a few minutes unpleasantnessin a dark corner she might earn enough for a drink of gin or a flea-riddenbed. Failing that she might find a seat in the lowest of flophouses, wherethere were no beds at all, just parallel lines of chairs with long ropesstrung in front of them for sleeping patrons to lean across. Most of thepoor looked like hell. And felt like it too, what with debilitatinginfectious illnesses and decaying teeth. It wasn't a good time to bebroke.<br><br>The problem with Ripper stories is that there is no satisfactory narrativeconclusion, no neat ending, because the murderer was never discovered, letalone caught. Structurally it's a kind of coitus interruptus. So over theyears we've pretended to solve it, using upstairs lodgers or effete royalty. The case file still exists but it's been so pared down over the years,through pilferage, loss, and souvenier hunting, that there are only a feworiginal pages left. <br><br>My bet? In the FBI typology he was a disorganized murderer, operatingimpromptu. As someone said in another comment, he was probably a localnonentity. He probably lived alone and kept to himself. If anyone noticedhim at all, they probably thought of him as slightly goofy for talking tohimself, believing in magic, or whatever. <br><br>
