17 years ago, Bill Condon and Ian McKellen collaborated on the masterful Gods and Monsters. Carter Burwell wrote the score. Bill Condon won an Oscar for his screenplay. Ian McKellen and Lynn Redgrave were nominated; neither of them won. Which would have been bad enough, but the actor who took the Oscar that most people have come to agree belonged to Ian McKellen was Roberto Benigni — an upset that most people have come to agree is one of the worst Best Actor travesties in Oscar history. McKellan was 58 years old that year. Now he’s 75. In a few months he stars as Sherlock Holmes in an adaptation of Mitch Cullin’s A Slight Trick of the Mind. Directed by Bill Condon. Carter Burwell has written the score.
