Did the 1992 version of WUTHERING HEIGHTS with Ralph Fiennes & Juliette Binoche for today's "Five Frames" post and realized -- I HAVE NEVER SEEN THIS WTF??? It's leaving Prime on the 2nd if you wanna join me and watch before then! Any fans? pic.twitter.com/LF8ohc4d5j— Jason Adams (@JAMNPP) April 27, 2022

The Odyssey Stays Home
Weirdly I spent some time on Twitter yesterday talking about Juliette Binoche and Ralph Fiennes and suddenly today there is new news of Juliette Binoche and Ralph Fiennes making a new movie together -- hey if I have this sort of power let me put "Oscar Isaac and Kit Harington Erotic Thriller" energy into the world right now, while I'm at it. As for Ralph & Juliette they've previously co-starred in the 1992 version of Wuthering Heights (which is leaving Amazon Prime in a few days and which is what I was yammering about on Twitter) and then in 1996 again and more famously with the Oscar-winner The English Patient. Those two are off the top of my head -- have they done anything else together? It seems possible.
star in a new adaptation of Homer's The Odyssey, with Ralph as Odysseus and Juli as his wife Penelope -- their spin is this movie will be a drama entirely about the moment when the Big O returns home from fighting monsters and men and finds his wife besieged by suitors, everybody having thought him undeniably and reliably dead. The film will be directed by Uberto Pasolini, who apparently is not related to the director Pier Paolo, but he IS related to the director Luchino Visconti? He's Visconti's nephew? That is weird! Weird information! Anyway this sounds great, I will watch this movie, the end.
