Let Them Eat Cake


Yesterday afternoon I blew off work and watched “Marie Antoinette.” I was prepared to find it frivolous and a bit boring, but I also knew I would be stunned by the visuals, which is why I had rented it. From the opening shot (red cakes and blue walls!) on, I was awestruck. I probably would have been just as happy with the sound turned off, but it really was stunning to look at.

Other movies that are just as good with the sound off include "Dick Tracy" and "The Adventures of Baron Von Munchausen." -M.
