Watch Me Entertain Myself!

Sacha Guitry once said, "You can pretend to be serious, but you can't pretend to be witty." Oh yes, I'm the great pretender.

The Wizard From Oz

video

Ever since Strictly Ballroom I’ve been a fan of Baz Luhrmann. In each of his subsequent films (William Shakespeare’s Romeo+Juliet, Moulin Rouge), he seemed to raise the bar higher and higher on himself. Consequently as a viewer I got giddier with each successive film.

And now Baz goes Gone With The Wind and Out Of Africa! Sweeping visuals, lush score, and two of the most beautiful and talented Aussie thespians in what looks like a sprawling epic; this is one movie I have to see on the big screen, not via pirated DVD.

(Thanks to Ricky for pointing out the trailer!)

I agree with the "Gone With The Wind" vibe. The trailer is just beautiful.
