Vanity Fair (1998) short review


Yet another I really tried to like but didn’t.  Natasha Little does well as Becky Sharp, but maybe it’s because she’s a somewhat unlikable heroine that it just didn’t grab me.  Plus the music was WAY too heavy handed — have your volume button ready!  Update:  I wrote this before seeing the 2004 feature film or reading the book, both of which I now LOVE.  So I tried to go back and rewatch this in case I might be more open to it — but seriously, I couldn’t take the INCREDIBLY LOUD HORN-BASED MUSIC.  I made it about 5 minutes before I had to turn it off!


  1. I would love to comment on the picture, but half of it is covered up by a pop up ad that doesn’t appear to have a close button.  Nice job, FlickChart.
