Trend is so dated.
And I laugh...
A few nights ago I finally re-watched Brother Son, Sister Moon - and laughed out loud. It had been years since I watched the film - and so my memory of it was even more romanticized than the real thing. Shortly after the election of Pope Francis, I defended the film since several critics were making fun of Zeffirelli's interpretation of poverty and ecclesiastic corruption, extravagance and so on - insisting the depiction of the life of St. Francis was NOT AT ALL like Brother Son, Sister Moon. They were right - the film is very dated, very hippie, a little protestant - but many scenes, the costuming, the sets, landscapes - are all still captivating. One would have to be something of a scholar, or an attentive student on the life of St. Francis to catch a lot of the poetic interpretation of the saints life in the film - that is, if you can get by the anti-establishment messages.
Oh well. I still think Zeff is a maestro.
I also watched Angels and Demons again - Da Vinci Code is so much better, that is for sure. Again - sets and location shots are the best - in both films.
Next on my list is to go to the theater to see Blue Jasmine - I can't wait. The storyline reminds me of a well known blogger - we'll see if I'm right.
Oh look Poodle, I'm all Barb Nicolosi-Harrington today!
