As others have noted, "MTV style" is a lazy description of anything
that employs quick edits (oh, yes, and chicks and fire, as Beavis would
note).  But ELIZABETH's style probably owes as much or more to Indian
film influences (especially given that the director is Indian himself).

(And I rather wonder that the Catholic Church hasn't bridled more at
the portrayal of Bloody Mary and the Pope himself!)
