Drowning by Numbers ★★★★★

My first Greenaway film and my forever favorite. From its strobe-lit misty scenery to its gratuitous extreme closeups of nature (hooray Sacha Vierny) to the extraordinary performances of Bernard Hill and Joan Plowright and Juliet Stephenson and Joely Richardson to the delightful and weird games that form its sub-plot to its perfect perfect perfect Michael Nyman score... There is nothing about this movie I don't adore.
