Big Bad Woolf

10/23/2008

I can watch Virgina Woolf‘s Orlando a hundred million times and it’s still amazing. I could never understand why this movie is not the benchmark for all period films. Dark, witty, and unforgettable, this insane escapade follows the life of its simultaneous hero / heroine over a span of three centuries. Orlando is total sensory candy. Sally Potter nails the book and Tilda Swinton kills it on screen. Not to mention the Jimmy Sommerville music. This is my favorite scene.
