A challenge to filmmakers @ 08:49 pm

Tags:

Hey you.

Yeah, you. With your CGI and blah blah blah.

I challenge you to make a film as beautiful and magical as The Red Shoes.

Take your time. No hurry.

Drat! That link isn't working for me. Are you talking about the 2005 version?

Nope, the 1948 version.

I hate to ruin a film by giving away some of the best parts, so you're only allowed to watch 30 seconds of this (yes, they stage a 15 minute ballet in the middle of the film):

Here, here.

Haven't seen but a clip of it from the awesome, highly recommended documentary Visions of Light:

Very likely VoL is why I put Red Shoes in my Netflix queue. I wasn't as thrilled with VoL as a documentary -- not being that big a film geek -- but it did inspire some additions to the queue.

My ex loved this film. I watched it with her a few times. It is a wonderful film. Never her let find out I said that.
