Svengali [Blu-ray] [2013] [Region Free] <b>Blu-ray</b> ~ Jonny Owen
I saw the trailers for this film, and thought it looked really good. The music in the soundtrack also appealed to me, so thought I would give it a go.

I was expecting it to be funnier than it was. There are a couple of funny moments, but I didn't find myself laughing that much. Having said that, I really enjoyed the film from beginning to end, and found myself really sympathising with the characters.

Great soundtrack, some great cameos from Carl Barat and Alan McGee, and just a really enjoyable British indie film..

A great read from one of Britain's best-loved actors. In had previously read another biography of David Jason, written by someone else, and I thought that was great at the time. However in this book, David himself tells his story and actually tells it correctly (some of the facts in the other book I read were totally incorrect it seems, after reading this book).

The early chapters were fascinating for me; his upbringing, his first few years as a jobbing actor. Obviously where it really gets going is when we get into the Open All Hours, Porridge, Only Fools & Horses, Danger Mouse etc. era. One of the most interesting things for me was finding out why the Only Fools Christmas… Read more
