  1. Interesting post. I’ve taken that test a few times over 20 years and am always INTP. And so’s my wife, so it works out. We saw Princess Mononoke during her niece’s anime phase. It was very well done and beautiful. Greenaway is a genius but “The Cook, et al.” cured me of seeing any of his other work. It was far too disturbing and still bothers me at random times.
    I’d like to see “Diva” again.

    1. Oh, do see Greenaway’s “Prospero’s Books”, it’s his retelling of Shakespeare’s “The Tempest” and it’s absolutely the most beautiful movie ever filmed. Not at all violent and disgusting like “Cook, Thief, etc.” It’s filmed like a play, very stylized and metaphorical. “Drowning By Numbers” is also safe – despite being a film about murder where exactly 100 things die (look for the helpful numbers in each scene counting the deaths from 1 to 100). I’d recommend “A Zed and Two Noughts” also, but it’s extremely weird and somewhat grody.

      I’ve always thought that Greenaway could do a very interesting adaptation of Stephen King’s “The Dark Tower” series, if he collaborated with John Woo. :D

      1. Oh, also see “The Pillow Book”. There is no higher celebration of the *art* of calligraphy.
