Hello Dolly

"Petite Mort" by Jiri Kylian performed by Netherlands Dans Theater. No further comments needed... brilliant!

"By Myself" by Judy Garland performed on The Judy Garland Show.  Deemed too dark for television in the 1960s... exquisite.

"Amelia" performed by La La La Human Steps.  Had the pleasure of seeing them perform live in Canada, and their agility is truly mesmerising.

Official trailer from A Single Man  directed by Tom Ford. This film is visual perfection and it's refreshing to watch a film about homosexuality that isn't driven by the usual gay clichés of drugs and sex.

Grew up with this film and love love love this scene with miss  Jessica Rabbit.

Bob Fosse Choreography from Kiss Me Kate.  Really comes alive at at the one-minute mark. :)

The 90s were amazing for many reasons but this film is just one of the funniest movies ever!
The comic timing of these actors is just brilliant and
The Birdcage doesn't contain one bad scene.
