    Don't know that one Barry. I'll check it out.

    Of the movies in my collection, I'm struggling to think of a better one than 'Nobody's Fool' with Paul Newman. It's remarkable, if understated. Lovely stuff!
    Mr. Tact!

    Main system: MMs/ADCs/Low output MC's/One rare Japanese SUT/One scarce British phono stage/various tonearms/hefty Japanese DD TT and hefty Japanese BD TT and small British BD TT. 4 CD players/2 jitter buster/2 DACs/Valve buffer. TVC stepped attenuator or valve pre-amp or solid state pre-amp. Current dumping power-amp or either of two Class A SS power-amp or Class A EL34 valve monos or big Japanese (part Class A) integrated. Big dual concentric speakers/Smaller dual concentric speakers/Two way British compacts and full range speakers, amongst others. And too much more to list!

    I just saw Suburbicon last night at a Cineworld Unlimited screening. Will be well worth a look in the cinema, on streaming or disc (if you're a collector like me). The 50s American vibe reminded me of Pleasantville (the fantasy where Tobey MacGuire disappears into a fantasy 1950s soap opera through an old TV), and its plot is very like Fargo - which is no surprise when you consider the Coen Brothers shelved this script in the 80s (?) and then wrote Fargo instead. Quirky, a little twisted and interesting. A good thriller.

    Lots of comment in reviews about the awkward inclusion of the neighbouring black family being harassed by white supremacists - and it kind of feels like it doesn't belong in the movie. That said, these are the only beacons of humanity in a pretty grim set-up, where almost none of the white characters really attracts any sympathy.

    As the night draws near and it gets colder, it's time to light the wood burner, draw the curtains, pour a nice warming cup of Assam and watch a movie.... Today's selection is:



    Looks like a bit of a chiller...
