You really get the sense of the 'culture' pulling people's bodies into new shapes.
actually it's on file in my archive (large parts of which do resemble a bin i'm sure) like all the writing of yours i can get my hands onI love watching people's gaits. I wrote a brilliant thing for Edmund on how to write a novel but he chucked it in the bin and I don't have a copy. I'm sure it included gaits in it.
My girlfriend was watching the new version of Emma on Netflix the other day, and I had exactly the same thought (actually more of a loud and constant complaint, to her irritation): the visuals and editing were so preened. It was not artistically original in any way because like all of these Austen adaptations it was precisely recycling the template set by the production team on the 1995 BBC Pride and Prejudice, except that it used all the ultra-clipped modern editing techniques and ultra-detailed computer-edited visuals to create this almost hallucinogenic simulacrum of Regency England. It was fucking horrible.she talked about "an overpreening of the image"
