The Draughtsman's Contract is a quixotic and verbose tale of intrigue, mistrust and betrayal from auteur Peter Greenaway, Anthony Higgins is captivating as the titular protagonist, Neville, with strong performances from all around him in this typically stagey production that rejoices in the full glory of the English language. The premise is novel, the manners quite brutal and the appearance of the whole thing utterly overblown. Unsurprisingly, it is not a comfortable watch, but always entertaining.
...to my blog, a scatterbrained journey from one random thought to the next. I make no apologies for this, it's the way we are. Why blog? It seems a bit egotistical at first thought, however I suppose it is, like anything else, about communicating with people, opinions, ideas, suggestions, mostly on the usual areas of creativity (music, film, photography, writing). Hackneyed? No, because these are the ways that we express ourselves, whether the language is ours or someone else's.
