3.0 out of 5 stars How times change, 19 Mar 2013
Python shows its age - the way it looks, sounds, feels and drags. Yes there are funny sketches but a great deal which even then missed the mark. Absurd and surreal situations aren't necessarily amusing. The final series - by which time John Cleese had left - is devoid of anything funny unless of course you count Michael Palin gurning and putting on a bad American accent the acme of frivolity. I'd rather have an anthrax ripple myself ;-)
The Lost World of Communism [DVD]
Good documentary about the collapse of Communism in East Germany, Czechoslovakia and Romania - looking at how people survived / conformed under these dictatorships and at people's responses to the brave new world ushered in by the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989. There is also a rude cartoon featuring Karl Marx. Who could ask for more comrade? ;-)

A Dutch film about the latter stages of the Nazi occupation of Holland. It is worth watching although the story - a resistance fighter evading German soldiers - is all too familiar and perhaps a little tired.
