THE THICK OF IT

The programme that has done more to make my generation interested in politics than any other.

DRIVE

Action. Intellect. The two colliding in a hollywood movie is something of a rarity. Prepare to be amazed by Nicholas Winding Refn’s Drive.

THE BIG LEBOWSKI

The film that takes genre strands and plays ker-plunk with them…to fantastic effect!

THE WIRE: THE BEST THING EVER FILMED

If you haven’t seen this yet, I envy what thrills await you. If you have seen it then you probably know what I mean. If you have seen it and you don’t absolutely adore it then I don’t think we can be friends anymore. Sorry.

ANIMAL KINGDOM

This film excellently ruined Air Supply’s All Out of Love. You’ll never listen to that song the same way again.

Arrested Development

America. Land of the free. Home of the brave. Surprisingly good producer of TV comedy. If only the Americans themselves had appreciated just how good Arrested Development really was.

Cold Lampin’ With Flavor

At a rough estimation I have waited around 20 years to see Public Enemy live. As you might imagine the days leading to the gig opened a route straight though to my inner thirteen year old and the excitement flooded in leaving me giddy and light headed.
