Hungry Like The Wolf

As with all cinematic attempts to translates fairytales for adults, and into live action movies, this looks a little bit silly:

But I’m really happy for Amanda Seyfried that she’s got a role where she gets to be sexual and brave again, and doesn’t have to be innocent and sweet and adorable. And as much as wolfmen, or mermaids, or whatever might not look great or feel plausible on-screen, fairy tales are a reminder that whatever security concerns we have now, the world used to be a much more dangerous and unstable place. A world in which violent men attempt to wrest safety out of the wilderness is ripe for magic, and drama.
