Fall is here and winter is coming, so it's time to start wearing shirts buttoned up to the neck (not that I ever stopped during the summer, but now it will be more comfortable), turtlenecks, shawls, and fake furs. What better to guide us into our cold weather lives and cloaks than films set in 19th and early 20th century Russia?

Nothing is better, that's the answer.


War and Peace:


Even if high collars are not your preference, these are still perfect movies to watch for when it's all chilly outside and all warm inside and you happen to have a refrigerator full of beer and borscht.

I love the scene in Dr Zhivago where they return to the house and everything's covered in beautiful white pure virginal snow!

I did NOT know that! That scene is too beautiful. We should watch it together this winter. Anz, time to visit.

I'm thinking of coming out next summer! Uh, not so much winter movie viewing weather, but maybe it'll make us feel cooler?
