Written on the Wind

Re-watched Written on the Wind last night, partly in preparation for my upstairs neighbor's 1960s party tonight. Anyway, brilliant as always, and check out this observation by Glenn Kenny on his excellent blog, Some Came Running.

He demonstrates just how thought-out Sirk's films are in terms of their visual construction. I'm not suggesting every movie needs to be so steeped in costume symbolism but it sure works in this movie.
