Great Expectations: Feast of Green
It's one of the more aesthetically rich films by Alfonso Cuaron.
I thought of the uber-talented Cuaron today while talking to someone who reacts to his work in a similar fashion.
Cuaron's filmic adaptation of the Dickens' novel remains to this day a favorite even though the literary text is not represented as authentically. But then again that is the beauty of interpretation. I believe Dickens would not mind many of Cuaron's choices, especially his poetry of color.
Here is a music video of the film. Notice the green texts featured therein.
