thanks for the tip, to be honest i never avoided it
i like his phrase about the costumes
and i think it may also be called a period drama
now i'm trying to concentrate on unusual literary adaptations with costumes
today they strike me the most
and of couse rossellini's approach to historical fimmaking
if i may recommend BRAM STOKER'S DRACULA ('92) - Francis Ford Coppala - when FFC started filming, he stipulated that "the costumes would be the set"... he collaberated with Japanese designer Eiko Ishioka, who won numerous awards that year for Best Costume Designs, including "The Oscar"... if you haven't seen it (and there's many mixed reviews for it), you shouldn't deny yourself the multicultural tour-de-force these georgeous costumes bring to the table... the OOP (ISBN 0-00-255167-5) hardback book is well worth owning too!... it retailed for $40.00 and i found a copy for $75.00, a steal as far as i'm concerned.
