Our next meeting was on 28.2.11, at Jon’s flat in Brixton, where we watched Amadeus, complete with cinema popcorn and hotdogs. Amadeus was chosen as a contrast to Festen, allowing future MNFC’s to be open to any sort of genre imaginable. It was also a nod to the 2011 Oscar ceremony taking place that week.
I hope you all enjoyed last night’s film. For those of you who couldn’t make it, Jon showed us Amadeus. I know Jon promised to lower the tone a bit after ‘Festen’, but I thought it stayed pretty highbrow, and I now wish all parts of my life were accompanied by stirring classical music!
I think everyone also enjoyed the genuine cinema popcorn boxes, courtesy of the Ritzy. I think we’ll all have to start upping our game when it comes to hosting!
With the aid of the ever-trusty interweb, I discovered today that Mick Jagger auditioned to play Mozart in the film. Not sure what the film would have been like with him in the starring role, but there would probably have been a lot less Oscars!
Until next time remember:
THIS IS NOT A DEMOCRACY
