Isn't all of this so current right now?

The visuals, art direction, photography, locations, decor, costumes….arresting. I don't care about what's going on in the least- in fact, it was rather dull and boring. Luckily Cleopatra had an outfit change after every word, and it was all a succession of cerulean blue waters and shimmering gold upholstery. I want to bottle these images and look at them every moment of the day, they're magical.
