90 pages into Phantasmagoria. Lots of rewriting going on. Still don't know if I'm going to pull this off. Questions of the moment - Why do I have so many characters? What's with Vaughan and his oral fixation? Why have I created a character with the initials S.A.E.?
Anyway, following on from my rant of the other day, I thought I share a list of my fave films. In no particular order as they change anyway...
Infernal Affairs - I dream of writing something this tautly plotted.
Dangerous Liaisons - the costume, the dialogue, John Malkovich in that coat.
Beyond the Valley of the Dolls - the music, Zeeman, I could listen to him all day.
Pitch Black - you've gotta love Riddick.
Desperado - stylish visuals, yummy Banderas.
Labyrinth - yeah, goblins and goblin king begging to be made your slave.
Ashura - demons, swording and kabuki theatre.
Velvet Goldmine - 70's glam and hot m/m snoggage.
Amadeus - I cry buckets everytime.
Gothic - who said the Regency was nice!
The Duel - Andy Lau looking scrumptious, supremely funny.
La Reine Margot - blood drenched politics.
So, what are everyone else's faves? Anything you think I might like?
