i like the cook, etc. a lot but yeah prospero is one of the more insufferable ones. imo the best ones to start with are the cook etc and draughtsman and then drowning by numbers is a sort of gateway drug to the really difficult ones.
This is one of my favourite ever films, but I have only ever watched it once and that was several years ago.
However I was in fact meaning to watch it again soon, so this has given me the impetus to do this.
Really looking forward to reading what everyone makes of this as there is always so much to pick apart and notice in his films. Greenaway is one of my favourite directors. Another great film of his that hasn’t been mentioned yet is Belly of an Architect.
