just watched an awesome film – wilde. (yes, that’s the one about oscar wilde.) scarily inspiring. similar to total eclipse, which, second to having seen the picture of dorian gray, inspired me to rent this one.
one of the things i love about movies is that, if you allow them, they transport you into places you may never have otherwise gone… sure, wilde and rimbaud were all about experiencing everything, but when one doesn’t have the means to do so, movies can be a decent substitute, at least psychologically.
“I feel like a city that’s been under siege for twenty years, and suddenly the gates are thrown open.” -stephen fry as oscar wilde, said film
