Narnia lip, there, pal.

So what if it's from Disney. So what if some people want to claim the film as a vindication for "Christian moviemaking" and C.S. Lewis as an allegorical prophet--hey, at least presumably Aslan's death isn't a protracted snuff film. So what if, visually stunning as the previews look, the magnificent lion still seems, well, a teeny bit risible, when it opens its jaws and starts to talk in that genteel British voice. It's mythic! It's seminal! It's got Tilda Swinton as a nine-foot tall dominatrix! I am so there.

Good God! That outfit of Tilda's looks like something from Viktor & Rolf. I guess high fashion does trickle down after all. Or something.

I like that NYer story, thanks for the pointer.

OMG - me, too. I saw Constantine just to see her play Angel Gabriel.

I do miss Tilda of The Last of England and Love is the Devil, though. Where, oh where, did she go?

Never heard of those, I'll have to check them out. I liked watching her in "Teknolust," a crap movie that did at least function as a Tilda fashion show.

Oh my god Narnia rocked! I've got to find out about that director, he really knew what he was doing.

There's a sad lack of Tilda/White Witch pix on the Web. If they had a Narnia movie poster that just had the little picture of her in her sleigh, I'd so buy it.
