...Because authenticity is so bourgeois.
whaaaat? I can't imagine anyone doing anything at that moment - it's mesmerizing! I am not sure I was breathing when I saw this movie and that scene for the first time, let alone reapplying makeup. And let me tell you, I am the touchup queen.
Isn't it a great moment? There are so many extraordinary visual punctuations in that film-- it's a buffet of technicolor climaxes-- but that's definitely my favorite, too. Every time I watch one Powell/Pressburger film, it makes me want to watch them all again.
