20:07 (Orientalist Pornography)

Each morning a screenshot from the 20th minute and 7th second of a movie

Mina Harker: There's more to marriage than carnal pleasure.
[the bound copy falls to the floor]
Lucy Westenra: Oh, Mina! So I see. Much much more!

Hee. Love that scene. Sadie Frost is so wonderful as Lucy.


yes. everytime i watch it i think: Jude Law is a fool. Boring Sienna Miller over this firecracker and the mother of his children?

Why didn't she become the world's most famous star ever? Seriously. She was amazing in that movie. He scene in the crypt? I had to rewatch that, like, five times just to soak in the awesomeness.

The whole thing was entirely injected with crack cocaine, but that's why I loved it.

Isn't Sadie Frost like batshit crazy, though? I was always sort of under that impression. I thought that was why he divorced her.

I also have no idea what movie this shot is from, and that makes me feel stupid.

Anyway, there is a new childhood summer movie post on my blog to link to. Just letting you know.

Adam - Bram Stoker's Dracula.

I had nightmares about her character after that scene in the crypt (I was only seven or eight at the time.) I can understand why that child actor playing the victim couldn't stand being around her for more than a few minutes.
