The Rich Humus of Writing About Art, Exhibit #12,265

A SANE SOCIETY would take the writer of the following description out to the middle of the Pacific and put them on a very small raft:

"David is an intimate portrait, which was shot in a single long take. Beckham was filmed sleeping, after training in Madrid. Simply lit from one light source this rich, painterly film presents a reverential and vulnerable image of this international football icon."
-- National Portrait Gallery David Beckham by Sam Taylor-Wood
... but nobody ever said England was sane.
