Best film of the year (next to Out of the Furnace), best portrayal of a sociopath and my kind of night cinematography. Also a great satire on media and “making it”/ruthless ambition and corporate careers. Highly recommended as a must see:



From the exhibitor’s point of view there is an argument for this though. Ofcourse the traditional business model is dying and the big 6 month windows between theatrical and VOD release etc. are obsolete, but when you’ve got overheads of brick and mortar venues with staff etc., then how can you compete against online streaming.

20,000 Days on Earth

Need a break from the monotony of admin and digital bollocks. Seeing this tonight, with live interview broadcast to selected cinemas near you: Seems interesting, particularly since I considered doing a documentary about #Nick Cave back in 1999, but he was curating Meltdown at the time, so we went for #Alan Moore, another inspiring and […]


The struggle continues

Another Monday, another dollar. More news on the Al-Qaeda show, sponsored by the arms industry, the ridiculous theatre of world politics and plenty of fake news links to assist in the confusion that plagues modern consciousness. I would trade all of the urban pleasures for a cabin in the jungle, but unfortunately you can hear […]

Michael Phelps with 8 gold medals after ploughing through lots of water and equally […]

Power of the Written Word

On 2 February Alan Moore was signing at Gosh comics in London. The event was scheduled from 14:00 till 17:00 but overran till !8:30. I popped in quickly to the basement before it all started to say hi, but Melinda had not been feeling well so wasn’t present. The main entrance and shop upstairs didn’t […]


Things to get for Christmas part 2: Books

A last few days to left to get some presents for the X-mas holidays, either for your self or friends and family. Being rather bored with the cinema offerings at the moment, I’ve been reading more than watching films (unless I’m catching up on classics). Books: 1) Cormac McCarthy – Blood Meridian Incredibly apocalyptic biblical […]
