Bright Young Things (2003) + letterboxd 
3/3
Best movies of 2021 || Personally I enjoyed the frothy nonsense of Bright Young Things extremely much (esp a bright young Michael Sheen) but these letterboxd reviews did make me cackle so loudly

I say we bring back ballyhoo and rappers start employing a Ballyhoo Man.
[Description: an excerpt from Careless People by Sarah Churchwell, reading "The initial details were gruesome, and the press was doing everything it could to sensationalize them. Within four years America learned to call this process "hype" but in 1922 they called it "ballyhoo" or "jazz journalism."]

Perhaps this was the defining moment of our epoch of speed and syncopation. This so-called 20th century of angst, neurosis and panic. 
(Bright Young Things, 2003) dir. Stephen Fry

Seriously, I have to stay away from certain FB groups every time someone posts a 1920s sewing project because I know what I'm going to see:
"You have to be tall and slim to look good in 20s clothes"
"I have a shape like yours and I look awful in 20s clothes"
"You're so brave! The 20s are so hard to wear if you're not slim!"
And if I answered any of these peop!e the way wellVodka'd!Daisy wants to, I would be banned so fast.
So, to all in the historic and vintage communities who remark on anyone's 20s-based project like that, I offer a giant
Get fucked and eat my entire ass
If you think that's at all an appropriate way to respond to someone's hard work then you can take several seats.
And yes, I will be contacting the admins to express my displeasure at that kind of comment being considered appropriate.

It was an age of miracles, it was an age of art, it was an age of excess, and it was an age of satire.
