A Brit a Day [#945]
It blew me away. It reminded me of how much I need to see 'Y Tu Mama Tambien,' the film in which Alfonso Cuaron directed Bernal to much acclaim. And then I started thinking about how much I like Alfonso Cuaron--he directed an episode of the obscure 'Fallen Angels' with Alan Rickman and Laura Dern in a classic noir story, "Murder Obliquely." [Look straight down now for Rickman in jammies, and don't forget to hold onto something as you do--]
Oh, and of course he directed HP3. And Prisoner of Azkaban is, visually and narratively, my favorite HP movie. You've got the classic lecture in which Snape instructs the class to 'turn to page 394.'
You have ominous meetings of all kinds--
And you have Snape showing us how a real man takes care of the kids--and if you should happen to see 'The Loneliest Planet,' you will understand how this screen cap brings us full circle, but I better shut up because it would be too easy to get real spoilery here about all that.
