“Fairy tales are more than true; not because they tell us that dragons exist, but because they tell us that dragons can be beaten.”

cressus:

     No one before Bernini had managed to make marble so carnal. In his nimble hands it would flatter and stream, quiver and sweat. His figures weep and shout, their torses twist and run, and arch themselves in spasms of intense sensation. He could, like an alchemist, change one material into another - marble into trees, leaves, hair, and, of course, flesh.  
     -   Simon Schama’s Power of Art. Bernini

Favorite Dance Sequences » Moses Supposes, Singin in the Rain (1952)
Performed by Gene Kelly & Donald O’Connor

They could start a fire with their feet, oh my goodness. They’re all over the place, taking the room apart with their insane energy and talent. I love this because it’s so intricate and again, they make it look so easy but you know this shit is tough. They dance on tables, chairs, around the curtains and falling trash. The whole thing is snappy and quick and Donald and Gene are equally matched in skill and happy arm movements. As far as difficulty and execution goes, this one’s the best dance in the film.
