The friend with whom I watched this the first time perhaps said it best: we now feel we are part of the Met family. A chance to feel part of an occasion you likely could never have afforded. A joyful even of celebration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly read., March 20 2014

This review is from: Seven Pillars of Wisdom (Audio CD)
The book itself is a classic and this is a superbly read edition. We share the author's adventures, to be sure, as viewers of the film Lawrence of Arabia do, but we also feel his anguish and doubt, doubt about what he is doing and about himself. And appreciate his contemporaries' sharply divided assessments of him and his life.

This review is from: A History of Scotland (DVD)
In some ways, the amount of time the narrator spends walking away from the camera into the scenery with his back to us seems to say it all. One wonders eventually if the series is about the author or about Scotland.

... in the end the author's particular Christian and spiritual point of view does come through. It is presumably not a coincidence that Christianity is the final chapter. Nonetheless, it is a convenient, classic, sensitive introduction to other world religions.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent but be warned ..., March 20 2014

It is a film based on the story in the opera, mostly filmed on location, not a staged opera itself. Professional actors with first-rate voice-over by Kirov opera singers and with the Kirov ballet. And it wasn't made yesterday either.

None of that diminished my enjoyment of it, and it may well have deepened my appreciation of the story.

2.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly disappointing., March 20 2014

This review is from: Puccini;Giacomo 2009 Tosca (DVD)
Despite excellent singers and a first class opera house, it lacked conviction and emotion. Yet the story is anything but.
