We're into Tilda Swinton. We've been eating up interviews she's given in addition to watching her films. When she mentioned her long association with Derek Jarman, I remembered that I'd always been curious about his film, "Blue." It was a film he made when AIDS had taken his eyesight and all he could see was a field of blue.

The movie is just that: 85 minutes of blue screen and a soundtrack. I've never had the patience to sit through it, but I realized yesterday it was probably on YouTube, so now I'm listening to it as I make breakfast and lunch and get ready for work. Magnificent radio play.

It hasn't gotten to where I'll deliberately seek out things that she's in, but I certainly pay attention and enjoy her in things. She's intriguingly odd.

What significance does it carry for you?

The Swinton and Jarman, together.

Well, she took part in like eight Jarman films. They really learned together. She is just one of the voices in Blue.
