for the last week ive been drowning myself in "son of frankenstein". ive watched it at least ten times. i can see where tim burton got so much of his inspiration. its one of the most beautiful and surreal films ive ever seen. the shadows and light. the architecture. the big painted sky.
ive also been swimming in the beatles. the george martin strings have always swept me in. "glass onion" etc..., but the music in "son of frankenstein" (which i see as a metaphor for my last year and a half of illness) and "bride of frankenstein" is stunning.  its some of the most beautiful music ive ever heard.
