blessing upon blessing

alan rickman is in this month's issue of los angeles magazine, complete with lovely photos. that's joy enough on its own. but then in the interview he mentions that he has an upcoming movie about the 1976 paris wine tasting in which california wines trumped french wines, causing a huge hullabaloo and all that. there was recently a book about this tasting, called judgment of paris, which i read maybe 6 months back. really liked the book. really really like mr. rickman.

hence, my excitement.

p.s. if you haven't yet seen sweeney todd, get your rear to a theater. i'm not usually into the gory stuff, but the visuals + the music + the story + the depp/rickman/bonham-carter combo = a fun/depressing meditation on revenge.
