Movie Night: Man in the Iron Mask (1998)

During semester time, when teaching loads are heavy and time for blogging is scarce, my good buddy @BizarreVictoria and I spend our precious free time watching adaptations of 19thC novels and affectionately, good-naturedly ripping them to shreds.

In her latest post, @BizarreVictoria and I recap The Man in the Iron Mask. Check it out:

    Victorians at New Year

    After an immensely busy semester with very few posts, I thought I’d ring in the new year by recycling last year’s rummage through the January letters and diaries of eminent Victorian (and ever-so-slightly pre-Victorian) writers to see how the great and the good of the period spent their New Years.

    Victorian Snark Theatre 3000: Vanity Fair (2004)

    @BizarreVictoria and I watched another 19thC adaptation. This week’s offering of over-saturated colours and machismo comes courtesy of ‘Vanity Fair’ (2004). There was hilarity and swearing (and spoilers). Enjoy!

    BizarreVictoria

    It’s time for another installment of Victorian Snark Theatre 3000! And this time we’ll be discussing Vanity Fair (2004). As you guys know, I watch a lot of shitty Victorian-inspired films with my good friend @VictorianMasculinity (whose blog can be found here) and we decided to turn them into blog posts.

    Previous posts on VST3K include:

    Dracula 2000

    Let it be known that I absolutely adore Vanity Fair. It hit me at exactly the right time during my teens and I wanted to be Becky Sharp for the next three years. So this is more of a good-natured roasting rather than the wild-eyed, horrified laughter that Dracula 2000 prompted.

    Let’s get started!

    WARNING FOR SPOILERS (obviously) AND EXCESSIVE SWEARING

    Meet Becky Sharp, the daughter of a talented artist, Francis Sharp, and his French opera singer wife:
