I was watching the movie Bronson this evening and enjoying its theatricality. Lots of grotty cells and prisons that looked great but their reality was irrelevant, all that was important was that they were texturally appropriate for the scene in question. And that made me think that maybe these days movies are more likely to go for the loose realism of the Puffy Chair than the deliberate composed theatricality of Derek Jarman or Peter Greenaway.
