    If you liked Takashi's remake Neil, you might like the original by Masaki Kobayashi 'Harakiri' [1962]. If that suits have a look at his 'Samurai Rebellion' [1967]. Both films are cinematic adaptations of works by Yasuhiko Takiguchi. I greatly admire Kobayashi's work, and particularly his imperative that we have a moral duty to resist injustice while at the same time being fully aware that such resistance is ultimately futile. See also Kobayashi's epic triptych 'The Human Condition' [1959-1961], based in part on pacifist and socialist Kobayashi's own experience in the Imperial Japanese Army during WW2.

    Quatermass and the Pit - BBC original TV serial. (You Tube)

    Fabulous and in many ways better than the Hammer film, though I like that a great deal.

    Dunkirk

    Went and saw this last night and its an interesting film, small scale, mainly focussed on a few characters, spitfire pilots, a small boat owner and the boats very young civilian crew, two soldiers, one French one British and a Naval commander. Its in places harrowing, moving but somewhat understated and matter of fact. There is plenty of drama and action and yet its not an epic film or a typical gung ho action film. Worth seeing and very well done.
    Regards Neil
