DVD: "The Libertine"

It is my absolute pleasure to recommend today's DVD to you.

Not necessarily because of the quality of the movie (although it's fine), but for the quality of the star.

Johnny Depp stars in this movie about 17th century poet John Wilmot who famously drank and debauched his way to an early grave.

His work, of course, wasn't appreciated until after his death.

Don't worry, Johnny Depp, we, your adoring fans, won't let the same happen to you.
