I love this opening scene from Bright Star. The hands at work in the deep blue morning light, cutting and sewing the linen together, with the marvelous close-up of the needle and thread moving elegantly. The music is also just so exquisite.
Seeing the sketches of the storyboards (or any hand written material) is also something I appreciate as much as the actual films in general. I’m the type of person who would watch the entire special features on DVDs. Some people might say it’s boring or annoying, but occasionally I secretly enjoy watching even the entire film again with the director’s commentary on. Well, I find it very inspiring.
