Gosford Park

We just watched all of Downton Abbey on Amazon Prime and weren't quite ready to say goodbye, so it looked like Gosford Park would be our best bet to recapture the mood. It actually cost us $3.99, even with Prime, but wow! it was worth it.

It was difficult to listen to; the sound levels were very uneven, and we stopped about 2/3 of the way through, planning to pick it up the next afternoon (you only get it for 24 hours). When we got back in, it seemed easier to listen to, and we finished -- or almost finished -- you get the one playthrough. I stopped it as the credits began, and we started it again, to get some clarification on what had been confusing at first.

Well worth it. A great movie with an unbelievable cast. I felt very smug in that I figured out at least part of the solution to the murder mystery. Hats off to Robert Altman, Julian Fellowes, and Bob Balaban.

Up next will be "Doctor Thorne," Julian Fellowes' new take of Trollope.

1. Godford Park has become a classic

I love its pacing, and all that Altman ensemble work.
since I have a copy, I watch every few years.
