5.0 out of 5 stars Free Will by Sam Harris, 22 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Free Will (Paperback)
A very clever and thought provoking explanation of how our brains pre-empt our conscious thoughts and actions. I recommend it highly.

A brilliant book that provides clear pictures of all the foods you're likely to encounter. Combined with straightforward text, this is an invaluable aid to anyone who needs to monitor their calorie or carbohydrate intake. I recommend it most highly.

4.0 out of 5 stars Untapped Gold, 25 Jan. 2010
This review is from: From Time Buried Years (Paperback)
David has presented a fine collection of his work here. It is varied both in the style and emotion of the pieces that comprise this beautifully produced book.
Many of the poems are autobiographical and give a glimpse of the highs and lows that have affected him deeply during his years as an accomplished writer.
You will find sensitivity and power here, in fact the very things that mark us as human. His work will strike a chord in the heart of any reader fortunate enough to have access to this elegant volume.

2.0 out of 5 stars Improbable, 15 Mar. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Locked Up [2004] [DVD] (DVD)
Although there are a few moderately erotic sequences, and the much mentioned rape scene is pretty graphic, this film lacks credibility at almost every level.

Most striking of these is the prison itself which seems more like a hostel. Does any prison allow the inmates to have so much potentially lethal items in their cells, or let them wander about freely from one wing to another with virtually no supervision?

The guards seem to be there simply as a necessary aside, a token of authority.

Overall, the film is weak - not one I'd wish to watch again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Delightful, 12 Mar. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Late Bloomers [1996] [DVD] (DVD)
A sensitively drawn picture of lesbian love with its inherent hopes and fears. Neither of the women concerned is beautiful in the generally accepted sense, but both show a delicacy and tenderness that make this a delightful love story.

The ending, involving family, etc. is perhaps a little unrealistic but the final result is a sense of fulfilment in an emotional closeness that is not always respected by people who haven't any knowledge of the subject.

4.0 out of 5 stars Powerful cinema, 12 Mar. 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The sense of tension is sustained throughout and reaches an explosive crescendo of vengeance. The degree of wanton violence means it wouldn't suit the faint-hearted, but it's a brilliantly made film dealing with the sensitive topic of an attack on a woman.

As the story unfolds, in small snatches and reverse order, some of the continuity is difficult to grasp - but a second viewing fills in most of the blanks.

Brutally frank in dealing with violence in several aspects, it's convincingly acted.
