    Since there is bugger all on the telly, and I've been playing music all day, I think I'll go and watch my copy of 'Gorky Park'.

    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    Cant sleep so The Admirable Crighton (1957) stars Kenneth More as the Butler who can do anything, even on a desert island.

    Winter in Wartime from 2008. This is a Dutch ww2 war film about a teenage Dutch boy, named Michiel van Beusekom, who tries to assist the Dutch resistance during World War II by helping a British airman stay out of German hands during the Nazi occupation of the Netherlands




    Superbly made and acted.

    Great Expectations (1946) stars John Mills. The classic and best version of the best Dickens tale imv.



    Great performances all round, and none better than Finlay Currie as Magwitch.

    Yes I agree that is the best one, although like all Dickens the plot is just a shaggy dog story.

    Re 'The Admirable Crichton' I've never seen it but I guess it is the inspiration for Kryton from Red Dwarf?

    Tonight's entertainment:

    The Neon Demon
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1974419/


    ooh Boy...

    Love it or hate it, once seen you can't ignore it.
    A real David Lynch/Kubrick feel to it.
    Loved it, a piece of art.

    The Directors doing his own thing, and that's pretty rare given the studio system.
    I have hifi 'n stuff.

    Noticed it, but what kind of beast is it ? Horror, thriller, erotica, art film, all of the above, none ?

    Good question...and its not immediately obvious!
    None (and all) of the above really, out there doing its own thing.

    A morality tale and comment on human nature dressed up in a visually stunning, visceral and gripping assault on the senses would about cover it?
    One of those films that reminds you that Cinema can still shock.
    Literally watched certain scenes thinking 'no way did that just happen'.

    Soundtrack is stunning Neil, (Same guy who did Solaris, Traffic and Drive) and part of the whole experience.
    Play it loud.
