Weekly Capsule 43.1: Crimson PeakPosted: October 27, 2015
Even though it’s still in the upper 80’s here, it’s been crisper in the morning and at night, and during the day the sun feels more warm than burning, so I’m taking advantages of that to wear my cardigans – like this new one – and lightweight sweaters when I can. If I wait until it gets properly cold, they may never see the light of day.
In other news, I saw Crimson Peak last Saturday and quite enjoyed it. I find the story lacking, but the costume and production design are truly, truly breathtaking in that creepy, Gothic kind of way (Jessica Chastain looks like she just stepped out of a Pre-Raphaelite painting. Especially toward the end.) The set actually reminded me a lot of Francis Ford Coppola’s Dracula – a quick Imdb search confirms that the two movies indeed have the same production designer. And Tom Hiddleston and Charlie Hunam are not terrible to look at either, so it’s definitely an eye candy, even if the story itself is not that great.
