I have a difficult time taking Natalie Dormer seriously as a dramatic actress between her kittie-cat looks and endless array of goofy facial expressions that can easily rival any silent film clown.

This made for a wonderful movie. Saw it in the theater originally, then several times on video. Just recently watched it again. Still great. That's enough for me which is good, since I don't watch TV shows anyway.

Peter Weir's 1975 adaptation was great...and haunting in a very subtle way. This new mini-series doesn't interest me (and I love television).

I did extra work on one of Weir's films (almost certainly his very worst film) and actually got a tiny bit of direction from the great man itself. One of those rare days as an extra when it was all worthwhile.

Was that Richard Grant as the geezer in that trailer? He's still too young to be made up like that.

Knew she looked familiar. THE FOREST. Watched it a couple of weeks ago on Netflix. Dreadful thing.

Natalie should just go into comedy and never look back. She's got the stuff for it.

Begins this week on BBC TWO here in the UK.

I'll be watching for Samara Weaving if nothing else. It's been years since I saw the movie. I'll miss the panpipes in this new version!

I watched the series on Prime.  Not without interest but waaaaaayyyy stretched out.  Weir's film is much more effective.
