Just saw "The Wicker Man" again for the first time in yonks (the original director's cut too). It's got a great maypole scene. I'd forgotten what a riot fertility rites could be.
I look forward to seeing it... for the first time.
"I look forward to seeing it... for the first time."Rilly? Never seen it before? This screening is so on. You are just gonna love it. It's not a horror film (as it's so often described) but rather a wonderful and well researched otherworldy flick about paganism clashing headlong with Christian law. And a fantastic soundtrack too.
Further on the subject of maypoles, don't you just know that this picture of order and neatness presages an accident waiting to happen?Pupils at Abbey Street School, Nuneaton, posing with maypole in school hall. 1900s
Lock it in, Mr N.Ramage: Yes the classroom calm is definitely uneasy. Something is afoot. Perhaps the pianist has a hand in it. Sudden melodic insurgency.(Abbey Street has a musical ring to it...)
