Picnic at Hanging Rock

Did not finish.

Had a high concept double-feature planned, following up The St. Valentine’s Day Massacre with this, but the side effects from the methotrexate I take for lupus symptoms kicked in and I became too loopy/cranky to follow through.

The movie:

(opening title card)

On Saturday 14th February 1900 a party of schoolgirls from Appleyard College picknicked at Hanging Rock near Mt. Macedon in the state of Victoria.

Me: Hey, Boo Boo, Let’s Go Get Us A Pic-A-Knick Basket At Hanging Rock!

The movie:

(opening title card continues)

During the afternoon several members of the party disappeared without trace…

Me: What, no John Larroquette narration?

The movie:

(voiceover, sadly not by John Larroquette, begins over lush shots of scenery)

what we see...
and what we seem...
are but a dream...
a dream within a dream....

(pan flute by Zamfir starts on soundtrack)

Me:

(pauses movie)

(goes to YouTube)

(watches the music video for Return to Innocence by Enigma because my head hurts too much to remember Sadeness, which was the song I was actually thinking of)

(stops movie)

If anyone has wondered why I watch/log/review even fewer movies than I used to, this is basically why….
