Heathcliffe must've been a cinch, but still, great likeness!

I like Kurtz and Humbert Humbert too.

Orlando is basically Jeanette Winterson. Kurtz looks far too epicene to me - could be ET. Jesus looks like the little guy from Flight of the Conchords. Or Billy Crystal.

Dracula looks just like the landlord of a pub I used to drink in. I always had my suspicions..
We fray into the future, rarely wrought
Save in the tapestries of afterthought.

Ben Kingsley should have played him instead of Brando.

He reminded me of Elgar... who in turn reminds me of a pub landlord.

Characters are really important. A composition will be good if it have literary characters.
