5. Aristus, have you seen Fiennes' Coriolanus yet?

If not, I think it's worth a look. If so, what did you think?

6. Not yet, but I want to.

Heck, I still haven't seen Julie Taymore's 'Titus Andronicus', and that was years ago...

12. Highly recommended

Fiennes does remarkable work, both as a director and in the role. Redgrave is stunning; the lady's still has it.

10. I thought I might be more lost with the quotes, when I started reading your WSTFTD

but it seems I never know what/who the "current" pix are about.

Sorry to be so ignorant (again)...

14. Sorry, Kali.

I had a hard time finding a comprehensible pic for this subject. It's about the crazed, face-chewing, "zombie" who attacked a homeless man last week in Florida.
