    It somehow hadn't occured to me at any point in the 10 years since I last saw this that I wouldn't love it anymore, but I realised within the first 5 minutes of pressing play today (and am honestly a little embarrassed that I've had this as one of my few 5-star films all these years.)

    This is the first Peter Greenaway film I've seen, even though for a while now he's been one of those filmmakers I knew I would love (based just on seeing stills from his films). So I was a bit nervous to watch one of his films in case he wasn't as great as I'd already made him in my mind! Fortunately, that did not happen, and I really loved this film. It disturbed me in a way I've not experienced before, and Michael Gambon's character is surely one of the most loathsome in film history, but brilliantly played. Looking forward to watching The Draughtsman's Contract next.
