Rickman's Rasputin

So I just finished reading a biography of Rasputin by Brian Moynahan, and (as if I didn't already know) found out that this Russian holy man wasn't just skeevy, he was SKEEVY. The book was probably a bit more detailed than any normal person would want to pour through, so if you ever want a quick account of this creep, you might want to check out the 1996 movie version starring Alan Rickman. (Hard to believe that Sense & Sensibility's sheepish and sensitive Colonel Brandon could also be Russia's scary sex fiend!) -- Amy
