No, I didn’t see the play. But there is a film. And here I was watching it, just a few hours ago. It wasn’t on my original list for this year, but today I wanted to just sit down and watch something. I clicked around Hulu, looking for some classics because I was in the mood for catching up on an old film. But there I saw the film version of Rent from 2005, directed by Christopher Columbus and featuring some familiar names.
I have never listened through the soundtrack all the way through, though I am familiar with a bunch of the major musicals.
Mostly I want to talk about the cinematography. I mean, mostly I want to talk about a lot of things about shooting cinematic takes on Manhattan. And mostly I want to write like the person I had envisioned myself becoming.
