They just premiered Sleepy Hollow on local TV here. Amazing cinematography. It is like there is a higher standard of the visual that prevails at the moment. You see it on blogs and Instagram and Pinterest. A snapshot is not near suitable a presentation of the personal, and so the professionals seem to have stepped it up even further. Images have to be perfect, imaginative and beautiful. The four white trees sequence; the bit where the passing vehicle flips the screen. I can't quite explain why I find the imagery alluring, but I do know that I am not a fan of the Headless Horseman. He is, unfortunately, rather essential to the story. In all this loveliness, despite its brutality, he seems like a bad special effect. Like the ones in the original TV version of The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to the Galaxy—remember that? Zaphod Beeblebrox's second head? Bad. And 'Ichabod Crane' besides being awfully cute in person (now, and in the form of Johnny Depp), is a great name to roll around your mouth. It's verbally tactile. I'll keep watching for now—until Elementary and Hannibal come back at least.
Who wore it better?
