Will anyone be watching Wolf Hall tonight?Watch
And they've filmed using only natural light; candelight, sunlight, moonlight. Even the night scenes used no artificial illumination whatsoever (they're using some very advanced cameras)
On an unrelated note... phwoar, Thomas Brodie-Sangster makes a very dashing Rafe.
Yes, I noticed the natural light thing, that was really effective. It gave a better impression of how things would have been darker without artificial lighting. And I loved the period costumes... I wish guys could still wear hats like that XD
And the clothing also looked more naturally period-ish. Like Cromwell's gear; it looked a little rough around the edges.
I love Mark Rylance anyway, so I will watch anything with him in. I am looking forward to seeing more Damien Lewis as the series progresses.
I haven't read the book, but I think I will try and seek it out now.
You're missing out! Surely one can disagree with someone's opinions and still appreciate their art? I don't agree with Wagner's opinions of Jews but his music is just as sublime.
i adore Wagner... his thrilling extreme chromaticism and rapidly shifting tonal centres appeal very much. That silly clown-faced authoress is a different kettle of sardines.
That is cruel of your bear...she suffered an extremely painful for illness which transformed her appearance as a result of poor treatment. I think you are very wrong to dismiss her so. She has won one of the most prestigious literary awards twice, breaking a record, and for good reason. She is an excellent author and historian who is an asset to this country's literary heritage. You should read her before judging her.
I was in a pretty heated debate recently with my brother who proposed that monarchal history (particularly of the Tudor period) is not 'real' history because the actions, psychological mindsets, physical attributes etc. of a few important historical figures does not relate to the 'wider spectrum' that real social and political events did for history. Does that make any sense or am I jabbering again? Because I'd be interested to know what other people think about that.
Still! Going to watch the first episode of this later on catch-up as I rather like Damian Lewis/the Tudor age in general.
