Yesterday I went to watch Francis Ford Coppola’s Youth Without Youth. It reminded me strongly of Hesse’s Siddhartha x Back to the Future coupled with Linguistics orgasms.

As the movie spanned almost 70 years, from flashbacks around the late 18th century to the 1960s, the costumes also changed appropriately. I also really liked looking at their changing hairstyles as well, so here are some stills culled from the movie:
