Out of this world Mechtild – thank you.

I sooooo want to see him as a tousled Octavian waking up in the arms of Marie Thérèse (the Marschallin) in Der Rosenkavalier. I could use any photographs as illustrations for Threshold.

Have you seen the film ‘Orlando’? There is a beautifully sensuous bedroom scene in it between Tilda Swinton and Billy Zane. Perhaps you could cap that scene and use something from it to illustrate ‘Threshold’

Here follows a few lines from one of the songs from the film that made me smile.

I am coming, I am coming!
I am coming through,
coming across the divide to you.
In this moment of unity,
feeling an ecstasy: to be here, to be now -- at last I am free!

-- "Coming" by Jimmy Somerville, Sally Potter, and David Motion

Oooh, no, Este,I have not seen "Orlando," although I have heard good things of it. Thanks so much for bringing it to my attention as "food for visual thought."

And Billy Zane! No kidding! I think that that is the name of the actor who is supposed to be the model for the pharoah in "Jah", the AU Egypt fantasy fanfic with EW cast as the hero, a concubine to the pharoah. I still haven't read it, but I think every character is supposed to be modelled after an actor, many of them from LotR.

But when I heard people talking about it in LJ, I remember thinking, "Who the heck is Billy Zane?"

So: If I watched Orlando, I might see some good illustrations for Threshold and finally see who Billy Zane it. Cool.

Billy Zane was the two-dimensional villainous fiance in Titanic. *makes a rude noise* Not his fault.

He was great in Orlando. Which is a marvellous film. It's a long time since I've seen it. Tilda Swinton is awesome in it!

Hey, I saw Titanic. The icky fiance? He was definitely icky. Good performance.

Today at the library I checked the system. They didn't have a copy of Orlando. I checked Inter-library loan (which looks into holding around the state, including universities) and while there were a lot of VHS versions out there, there were only a few DVD holdings out there. I put in a request at once, figuring the rental places wouldn't have either. If it shows up I'll be able to watch it and see if there is some real screencap material.
