Watched "The Brothers Grimm" and for some reason kept thinking of a movie about the Brothers James all throughout. As in James, William & James, Henry, because that would be... snarky beyond belief, for one. (I know that there have been movies about the Brontes -- I was interested in the 1979 Andre Techine production "Les Soeurs Bronte" starring Isabelle Adjani, but thought it was rather flat. I was expecting a film concentrating on the Brontes as writers instead of metaphysical manifestations of a deconstructive French gloss on the Victorian female mystique. Yeah.)
I'm always a little bemused when I find "Wuthering Heights" interpreted as the ideal of Gothic Forbidden Romance though. It's definitely gothic, but Heathcliff doesn't really bear any resemblance to the dark brooding moody exotic save-me-from-myself heroes he's supposed to be the template of. People seem to forget how psychopathic he's become by the second half of the novel, plus the love (and obsession) he shares with Cathy doesn't so much strike me as neo-Romantically romantic as it is platonically incestuous. Which are not mutually exclusive, of course, but I think that the pattern of their relationship takes more after the Byronic model of brother-sister relationships filtered through German romanticism rather than through overwrought Victorian serials.
