jules’s review published on Letterboxd:
as i’m in the process of writing something about religion and the angst it causes, i knew i had to revisit this for inspiration. first of all, the world building is probably my favorite in cinema history; it mixes the bright saturation of the 1990s with the catholic aesthetics of shakespeare’s time to create a melodramatic, vibrant setting, and it’s an iconic aesthetic at that. i really hope to include some homages to this in my writing, not necessarily the play itself, but baz’s version, as i’ve preferred it since 8th grade when i first read this. the incredible visuals of this film have inspired so many other works of art and i just really think thats a feat in itself alone.
also diane venora is a milf in this
