Catching this film soon after its U.S. release, we admired much about the story but found the costumes a little lacking in historical accuracy. Yep, designer Joan Bergin reused some things from The Tudors and let a little gaposis shine into A Little Chaos, but at least we still have determined proto-feminist Kate Winslet, brooding Belgian Matthias Schoenaerts, and not enough of the awesome Alan Rickman playing around in muddy Versailles to distract us.
You can listen to us critique A Little Chaos costumes online below, or on iTunes.
Or, if you’d like some visuals, we made another video slideshow version of the podcast!
Watch it on YouTube: Or not. NBC-Universal is claiming copyright of our video, which is ridiculous because the whole thing is a criticism (as in, analysis) of the film, which is specifically acceptable as fair use. We’re figuring out what we want to do next.
