(Another recommended, rare, interesting Kultur DVD)
This 2004 ‘talking heads’ video directed by Bill Hughes for Amnesty International is a collection of Wilde quotes and excerpts read by over 150 well-known media personalities, musicians (Philip Glass, Annie Lennox, Bono) and actors (Martin Sheen, Edward Asner, Geoffrey Rush. Liam Neeson). The memorable, impressive humour, wit, truth, and wisdom of Wilde is quite impressive; there is no question that he was and remains an important, seminal figure whose life and art can be assessed and appreciated by his words alone. Many memorable and obscure quotes are featured throughout. A treat for the Wilde fan or anyone who doubts his philosophical greatness.
