Orlando


Why hadn't I seen this film before? I really can't explain, but now I have and I must sing it's praises. All anyone needed to tell me was that Quentin Crisp was playing Queen Elizabeth I and I would have been sold. Didn't Christopher (Kane) reference this film for his A/W 08 collection when I worked there? This all points in the direction of, if you haven't seen this film RUSH to the video shop and rent a copy.
Also now I want a wolfhound.

  1. I told you it was an amazing film. The costumes are just divine, and I adore the scene with the ice-skating Russians. Quentin Crisp also makes a fantastic Queen Elizabeth. Did you realise that the angel is Jimmy Sommerville from Bronski Beat?
