The only flaw with this, Taymor's movies can be gorgeous messes of cinematography and direction...Have you seen Titus?

That said, I probably will rent this anyway.

I have not seen Titus.

If it better than Prospero's Books, which was well acted but had too many naked people, I'll be happy.

Well, that was Peter Greenaway, who based on his other movies I'd say is *far* more sex-obsessed than Taymor. If not Titus, other Taymor movies you might check for comparison include Frida about the life of Frida Kahlo, and Across the Universe, the Beatles musical of fairly recent vintage. She also did the Broadway stage version of Lion King.

I can't WAIT to see it! Julie Taymor worked on the film, and she's incredibly brilliant. I'm so excited!
