The Worricker Trilogy [DVD] [2013]
The Worricker Trilogy [DVD] [2013]
Dvd ~ Bill Nighy
Price: £7.00

4.0 out of 5 stars David Hare digs deep, 8 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
David Hare is not le Carre, but Worricker is a worthy and engaging MI6 hero, as shrewd as Smiley but much happier in his own skin. This trilogy mines a similar vein and anger to recent le Carre books, but the tone is lighter, and the acting is superb.

4.0 out of 5 stars Snow White with Bulls?, 1 April 2014

This review is from: Blancanieves (Region B) (Blu-ray)
Even better use of the black and white silent genre, this retelling of a classic in early 20c Spain is witty and beautiful.

5.0 out of 5 stars My most viewed film of all time, 1 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The difference between Art and Entertainment is that Art demands something of the viewer. This is a very demanding film and many have refused the demand. For those who do respond it rewards with a new narrative style, visual beauty, and profound (and challenging) theological insight into the value and cost of human life. I have shown this movie 14 times to friends and still cannot take my eyes from the screen.
Chastain glows and Pitt gives his best ever performance, achingly true,

4.0 out of 5 stars Great soundtrack, 10 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: About Time (Audio CD)
As I watched the film - which I really enjoyed - I made a note to buy the soundtrack and I am not disappointed. Rarely does the music contribute directly to the narrative in so charming a way, without 'telling us what to feel'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Challenging, illuminating, rewarding, 10 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Don't go for these if you like romcoms. Do go for these if you like to be challenged, illuminated and rewarded.

5.0 out of 5 stars At last, 10 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Raise the Red Lantern (DVD)
I have been looking for a good print of this movie with English subtitles for 20 years, so this is a delight. This Thai copy does not say it has English subtitles, but it does.
