Casanova, part two - Vox Audita Perrit, Literra Scripta Manet.... — LiveJournal
The heard word is lost, the written letter remains...
Casanova, part two
I shed a tear at the end. A very stupid thing to admit here maybe, but Peter O'Toole's performance in this part was just staggering. And he had chemistry with Rose Byrne to boot!

David Tennant, as in the last part, is still utterly charming and has one of the most disarming smiles I've seen. It just lights up his whole face. And I am still disturbingly okay with him stepping into Christopher Eccleston's shoes.

But yes. It was more emotional than I expected. I think I may have to sneak over to the David Tennant community and take advantage of the screencaps available, and after work tomorrow I may just go into the city and pick up the dvd from the ABC shop.

However, I won't watch said dvd/make icons at least until I finish my essay for Biblical Controversies, which I'm aiming to have done by the first. Currently, there's a hole in the middle of the essay where I'm desperately trying to back up my argument that Jesus was subject to human instincts and desires. It's not that there aren't some excellent Biblical quotes to help me along here, it's actually putting it into words that's the problem. My lecturer Michael (who had to step in as Ed has been in hospital for most of the semester and is recovering currently) is a tougher marker than I expected, and I don't wish to mess up what I believe is my magnum opus for the year.

Libby, I shall send you an e-mail tomorrow after I've watched the first part of Mary Bryant (which I'm currently taping). Besides the discussion there, I've gotten my hands on an mp3 of Alan Alda singing, which I'm sure you'll want to hear. :)

The essay sits on around 3000 words currently. Let's see how much I can squeeze into that...
