Watching Bright Star

Bright Star 1

Bright Star 3

By far the best movie I have seen in a very very long time. Get your hands on it and watch it over and over and over and you cannot be disappointed. Be forewarned though, it is not a movie to watch with lots of people. Watch it alone or with a single special someone. All the scenery, dialogue and music has to be felt and absorbed for the film to be enjoyed fully. If you are distracted it will seem a mere boring period film.

Bright star, would I were stedfast as thou art–
Not in lone splendour hung aloft the night
And watching, with eternal lids apart,
Like nature’s patient, sleepless Eremite,
The moving waters at their priestlike task
Of pure ablution round earth’s human shores,
Or gazing on the new soft-fallen mask
Of snow upon the mountains and the moors–
No–yet still stedfast, still unchangeable,
Pillow’d upon my fair love’s ripening breast,
To feel for ever its soft fall and swell,
Awake for ever in a sweet unrest,
Still, still to hear her tender-taken breath,
And so live ever–or else swoon to death.
– John Keats
