I'm busy preparing for a trip out of state and don't have much time to blog this week, so in my absence please check out this movie featuring Madeline Stowe and Alan Rickman. It's called Closet Land and it's just about impossible to find now on VHS or DVD. Fortunately it has been uploaded in nine parts on YouTube so if you're intrigued after watching the first scene, click on the link below it and it will take you to the second clip on YouTube, where a sidebar there will have links to the remaining seven scenes.
I only recently learned of this movie, and will only say that I found it timely given our government's increasing practice of spying and snooping. I also found it very disturbing, so disturbing in fact that at one point I nearly ended the imaginary affair I've been having with Mr. Rickman. Almost.
So here's the first scene, and a link to the second. To those with time to watch it, I'd be interested in knowing what you think. Would you have signed?
Here's the second scene.
