Movies about Journaling and Drawing
- With summer here, I'm finding myself drawn more to movies about
journaling, writing and drawing. Here are some I've seen so far. If
you have a recommendation, please I would love to hear from you. I
"The Draughtman's Contract": In William and Mary's England, a
Draughtman is hired to sketch an English estate with secrets and a
"The Pillow Book": Every birthday since childhood, Nagiko's father
writes a birthday message on her face. Now a grown woman, Nagiko
searches for the perfect man who is a great lover and a great
calligrapher. Ewan McGregor appears in a pre-Star Wars role.
"Henry and June": Explores the relationship between Anais Nin, her
husband Hugo, writer Henry Miller and his wife June.
"Like Water for Chocolate": A woman narrates a story from a journal of
receipes and family history that mixes romance and magical realism. A
great adaptation from the book.
"Seven": Not the movie, but the DVD featurette about John Doe's
journals. The men behind the journals tell what inspired the pages and
some of the materials used to create them. The cost to create the
journals seen in the movie: $15,000.

- Great Expectations ... the modern version of Dickens classic is visually gorgeous with a wonderful soundtrack - set on the Florida Gulf Coast with Ethan Hawke and Gwyneth Paltrow. Anne Bancroft plays the eccentric Mrs. Dinsmore. His sketchbook is a central feature. and a very spooky Robert DeNiroProspero's Book - a dramatic fantasy ... another Greenaway film of great beauty, starring Sir John Guilgud and based on Shakespeare's The Tempestplayed out in dance and words; all the dialog is spoken by Sir John throughout the film. The 'books' form the central plot, Prospero's magic depending on them.These two films and the one you mentioned, Greenaway's The Pillow Book are worth watching again and again.Janiceps ... also Ruby in Paradise, a character study with Ashley Judd. Trying to find herself and writing in her journal

- Thanks for the suggestions so far, I'll add them to my list. Last
night I just watched "Frida". I was knee deep in my Master's degree
studies when it first came out and I never saw it. Also I saw "The
Virgin Suicides"- very haunting. One of the Lisbon sisters keep a
journal. I read the book, but I saw the movie again. There is
something very visceral about Sofia Coppola's films.
