I haven't seen the full thing, but here we go...

This film was on during a lecture, but... It fucked with my head, and not in a good way. I became irretrievably bored and annoyed at it. Slept through some parts. I don't believe I'll ever sit down and watch the full movie. But here are my full uncut thoughts on what I saw:

Orlando is fucking terrible. It's not that I'm not open to the bending of convention or a bona fide mind-fuck ... read more

A good movie

Since this movie has a solid reputation, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, I have to admit that I always had a hard time to connect with Sally Potter's work (and, by now, I have already seen half of the movies she has directed) and I'm afraid even her most heralded movie turned out to be quite challenging. At least, there is no doubt that Orlando was quite a fascinating character. Still, e... read more

Description: Orlando is a visually-stunning screen adaptation of Virginia Woolf's 1928 novel. Writer and director Sally Potter has fashioned a cinematic masterpiece mixing a treasure house of dreamy images from different times and places, an imaginative meditation upon the genders, and a clever glimpse of English literary and social history. The story spans 400 years and not a moment is squandered. Orlando gives us a passport to travel freely between masculinity and femininity. While it offers no blueprint for changes in sexual stereotypes, it does identify some of the limitations inherent in each role. Best of all, Orlando challenges us to ... (more)

A good movie

“Since this movie has a solid reputation, I was quite eager to check it out.

Still, even if Tilda Swinton certainly delivered a strong performance here, I wonder if she was really the right choice to play this character. Indeed, in my opinion, an even more androgenous actor/actress might have worked better. Concerning the rest of the movie, well, beside the fact that the main character was apparently immortal and changed gender half-way through, the damned thing was pretty weird w” read more

"23.3.2020, YLE Areena Keskittyy esittämään ja tutkimaan yhä edelleen todella relevantteja pointteja naisten asemasta, sukupuolien välisestä tasa-arvosta, ja koko sukupuoli-käsitteen merkityksellisyydestä/merkityksettömyydestä. Valitettavan vähän, mutta kuitenkin hieman Virginia Woolfia lukeneena voin vain kuvitella lähdeteoksen filmattavuuden haasteellisuutta, ja tämä kyllä näkyy lopputuloksessa. Tässä tapauksessa kyse ei kuitenkaan ole yrityksen puutteesta, vaan pikemminkin "
