Big Breadwinner Hog

I saw this 1969 serial from Granada for the first time recently. For me this has to be among the best things I've ever seen on TV. I watched nearly eight hours of it in a few nights, as I was gripped. Quite unlike anything I've seen before in the gangster genre.

Single White Female

Some thoughts after seeing 'Single White Female' for the first time:

How did I miss this great film for 17 years?

Two great performances by two of the my favourite screen actresses

Bridget Fonda should have had more lead roles

Jennifer Jason Leigh delivers another masterful performance

Among the many other of her films that I like, the three that come to mind as favourites are 'In the cut' 'Existenz' and 'Rush'.
