Review: (Required): 

I think the most seductive--mood creating songs for anytime but Valentine’s Day specifically are without a doubt Leonard Cohen's "I'm Your Man" from the album of the same title followed by his "Dance Me to the End of Love," found on Various Positions.

Review: (Required): 

This masterful adaptation by Ang Lee of the Annie Proulx short story is a landmark in the cinematic depiction of love between men. Two impoverished ranch hands in 1963 Wyoming meet while sharing work and initiate an intimate relationship that informs the rest of their lives. An unlikely love transcends the circumstances of a repressive, homophobic society, even as the characters' lives are ruined by the societal hatred surrounding them. A beautiful, unforgettable cinematic achievement.

Rebecca / Daphne du Maurier.
Review: (Required): 

“Last Night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.” So begins du Maurier’s 1938 romantic novel, Rebecca. The line also begins the Alfred Hitchcock film version, which was named Best Picture for 1940. This work is usually described as Gothic fiction, but as really good Gothic fiction. Critics credit du Maurier’s storytelling skills. Romantics-at-heart should expect to find a good read (or a film of note) in the surprising adventures of the second Mrs. de Winter.
