  • **Quite simply the most beautiful and elegant film you are likely ever to watch. This film carries a potent impact that can't be denied. The surreal and real meld into an exquisite whole. A young maestro recognizes his score, protests and is subsequently hired to write the score for "The Red Shoes". A young ballerina is hired and her talent and beauty soon gain her the lead role. Subsequently a love triangle ensues, with unusual results. Unlike any film experience I've ever had The Red Shoes elevates above meager cinema and achieves a divine quality. In my opinion the last 15 minutes, a hypnotic rendition of the name-sake ballet, is the finest sequence ever to grace the silver screen.

Hey, thanks for reviewing your favorite of each year! I'm going to try to see all of them.

Hey, is that a self-portrait you have as your photo? That looks like it could be your signature in the lower-right corner. Man, that's great!

That is my self portrait!

Wow, good eyesight spotting the signature, that picture is pretty darn small.

and thanks.

I was going to ask about that.

No, really.

Talk about autographic artwork. [Signature...autograph...get it? bertie, you are such a wit. Did someone say 'twit'?]

Ha! You are truly a funny person Bertie.

What do ya think, good, bad or indifferent?

I'm guessing it's not an analog representation, right? Not digital either in the original (doesn't seem to be pointillist). Abstract, then. Calls forth an impression of fierceness. You looking fiercely through a window past drapes you hate. Or into a mirror - were you mad at yourself that day? The style is a homage, right? (I didn't want to say derivative.)

Seriously though, I like it. Strong, bold, in your face. It's you.

Not analog although it is a representation of of my exterior. Definately abstract. My sis says "yes you were mad at yourself that day." Those actually aren't drapes, they're actually a focal cheat I used to create focus on the face. I was in my "I love Kandinsky" phase, he definately influenced but other than that I was tapping into my collector/obsesive compulsive part of my brain with the designs.

That was my favorite pullover I've got in said painting.

Interesting comments. Thanks.

I can't gurantee anything other than, you'll love this years movie. I have never met a person who didn't adore "The Red Shoes", well, other than my brother, but he liked it!
