Distant Voices, Still Lives

In order to create the desired atmosphere—drab, working class England of the 1940s and 1950s—Distant Voices, Still Lives is shot in a kind of muted color, with every day seemingly overcast. 1,308 more words

Breakfast on Pluto

Dive into it, and you’ll swim out the other side”
