This afternoon - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet....

This afternoon
Watched 'Tom and Viv' this afternoon, and I have to say that it's very similar to the Virginia Woolf section of 'The Hours', but with more flaws. Maryke thought Willem Dafoe's accent was atrocious, though I'm pinning it more as a transatlantic accent than a British one.
The performances were decent, and I do confess as an English Literature student I did get quite a buzz out of seeing dramatisations of a few of those famous parties that the Modernist literary figures held in the 20s and 30s. Virginia Woolf holding court over the likes of D.H. Lawrence and Eliot and the like. Absolutely marvellous. But the film ultimately left me a little disappointed in a way. I felt that the ending was somewhat abrupt and all in all I found it rather unremarkable. It failed where 'The Hours' suceeded.

mmm.......think I'll do something about that aforementioned Monkey Island/Grim Fandango layout tonight. Already jazzed up the user info a bit.

Oh, and suddenly everyone wants to be my friend, it seems. engastrimyth is the latest person to fall under the spell of my charisma.
