Finally getting around to watching Broadchurch. On the one hand, it’s only half way into episode one and I’m already a wreck (beautifully shot). On the other hand, I’m distracted by all the actors that I’m used to only seeing in period dramas.
Any idea where I can watch empress of china? I just moved out of Asia and am so lost where to get my period drama fix when there's no access to TVB or illegal cd shops. Have tried tudou but the buffering time is killing me.
hunantv usually posts their dramas up on youtube! and even if they don’t there’s lots of users who will post dramas up there as well.
✧:“Joe [Wright] just told me: ‘You better make it good because it’s really significant.’ So, I felt very worried that it wouldn’t be good enough and I just made it and I thought, ‘Well, it’s kind of OK.’ Someone asked me before ‘What makes a costume iconic?’ It’s really only partly the costume designer. It’s really about Keira wearing it, at that moment, looking the way she does. The way that it’s framed. How Joe uses it. How it fits in the story. All those things make it something… It’s made to be at that moment in the movie, and its greatness comes from all those elements at the same time. I didn’t know it would be so good, you can’t know!” — Jacqueline Durran, costume designer for Atonement (2007).
"Everything’s pattern on pattern on pattern— the chairs and the seat coverings and the wallpapers and the costumes…. Something that we wanted to build into the opening section was that it was very verdant and over-textured, as opposed to the later section where things become a lot sparser."— Joe Wright.
