Wondering why times are missing?

Mystic Masseur

Ismail Merchant of Merchant/Ivory fame steps out on his own to create (what else?) a historical costume drama based on some old novel that college professors tell each other they've read to sound impressive. In 1940s Trinidad, a frustrated writer supports himself as a masseur--only to become a renowned mystic and politico. This slowpoke drama isn't likely to appeal to most audiences, and will probably rank as a disappointment to fans of Howard's End and The Remains of the Day. 117 minutes
