Rewatching a classic........It is a universal truth


We were struck by the beauty
of the filming of Pride AND
Prejudice by Focus Films as
we rewatched it the last couple
of days. The camera looks down
halls, sees into windows, watches
as Elizabeth Bennett walks or
swings like she's in a Vermeer
painting.

You see we finished
Foyles War last week. So we've
been rewatching favorites.
It is sort of like comfort food.

We will be watching these films
this weekend:

The Steps of Worship: Film and
the Dance of Litany


Good blog by Greg Wilbur on The
Dance as Litany.
Have you seen any of these?
I have seen the first one and the
second. I have read this review of the
last one
written by Jason Saxon
Smith: The Educated Imagination:


A thesis I propose concerning this film is that Marilyn Hotchkiss' story, imagery, and symbolism reflect the work and mission of the Church in the world.

I love re-watching favorites, especially Austen ones :-) I have a friend who LOVES Places in the Heart. It's on my list -- I haven't seen it yet.

Warning: Do not watch "The Secret of Moonacre" . . . I am rereading the book to restore Elizabeth Goudge's original vision in my mind's eye!
