The journal of an American expat in Russia
Ну что ж, коротко и ясно. Плохой фильм длинных рецензий не заслуживает :)
Why did you go to it? I am so picky "ahead of time" that I miss a lot of good movies. My daughter and I went to see "Brideshead Revisited". I had forgotten what sort of writer Waugh is. As Lydia said, "I didn't care about any of those people". Maybe not, but the "character" of the house/Church was fascinating as were the characters' relationships to it. I've never felt so much like I wanted to write a paper! Seems like the only way to fully explore all the imagery and symbolism in that movie.
Should point out that Evelyn Waugh was a thoroughly Roman Catholic writer, so it would be most interesting to a Catholic audience, probably.
I didn't go to it, I just stopped on it when I was channel-surfing and wanted to know the end. There was nothing racy in it, just stupidity. And I was cranky because I have a cold.I give credit to the priest because he was the only one who said something positive about marriage. Corny, but positive.I am pretty picky about going to movies too, basically the only ones I go to see are cartoons or family movies like the Chronicles of Narnia. It's too awkward when you're sitting in the theater and something inappropriate comes on!
