    This was the first Jane Campion movie I ever watched. I don't think I've seen it in at least two years, during which time I've seen five more of her movies, some of them two or three times. Returning to Bright Star, which was a staple of my childhood period drama canon, really helped put her entire filmography in focus.

    In some ways, it's entirely unlike her other movies. There are no complicated sexual dynamics, thanks to the main romanceโ€ฆ

    Heat and Dust


    As with any dual timeline movie, I could always do without the modern one but mostly because I'm fascinated with the friendship throuple dynamic of: ailing gay Englishman, possibly corrupt but charismatic Indian Nawab, hot woman whoโ€™s actively colonizing his country. You think to yourself: how could this turn out well? The answer: weirdly enough they make it work.

    Jane Eyre


    My ABSOLUTE favourite part of this masterpiece is when Janeโ€™s like โ€œIโ€™ve never seen a city!! Iโ€™ve never even talked to a man!โ€ and like five minutes later Michael Fassbender shows up and is like โ€œ forest elf....from what woodsy hovel do you you find me bewitching fairy my wife.....โ€ like how do you REACT
