on a Saturday, not too far from where I was born

The Tiger's Tail

John Boorman is one of my favorite directors, 'Excalibur', 'Zardoz' 'Deliverance', and 'Point Blank' are films that are ingrained in my consciousness as among the greatest fims I have seen. Tonight I watched 'The Tiger's Tail' and was thrilled by the vision of a great filmaker. Another masterpiece from John Boorman.

The Ruling Class

I saw 'the Ruling Class' again for the first time in over 20 years last night. This is probably my favourite film and I've waited a long time for a region 2 dvd that represents the film as it should be. I will write at more length about it in the furture. See it if you value great cinema.
