Huh

You know, wiki can tell me all about the devices used in the Victorian era (aka the early days of film), but yet there's no article about some of the themes and film styles they used. And yes, in this case I'm using "film" as a very, very loose term. However that aside you'd think this would be just the thing some wikiphile would love to rant about. But no, nothing. The closest reference I have on hand is... ugh. The 1992 Dracula movie. Now don't get me wrong, it's gorgeous to look at and it uses Victorian motifs and film trends wonderfully, just. I don't like how all of the actors seem to be spending every moment in the film trying to chew as much of the scenery as physically possible. -And I LIKE about half the cast.

My Balalaika Icon speaks volumes about how enthused I am about rewatching this film.
