I've been watching a lot of DVDs lately, mainly for my work. My favourite so far is Martha Fiennes's adaptation of Pushkin's Eugene Onegin. I first saw this film a couple of years ago and I remember it getting a lot of negative reviews from critics because it was considered "too beautiful", which seems to me to entirely miss the point of how beauty functions as a metaphor in the film. Ah, but never mind about my disagreements with critics, whose job it is to dislike most films anyway. It is a little gem in my eyes.
Oh and if you're in the mood to look at some more beautiful things, then click here. One of my photos has been included in the prettiest etsy treasury with an English, Jane Austen theme. I think it's quite adorable.
