This review is from: The Late Hector Kipling (Paperback)I bought this because I've always liked Thewlis's acting and I have an interest in the London Art scene. I had no idea that I was picking up such a work of genius. Debut or not, this is a masterpiece. Will Self must dream of getting this good. Such ballsy and honest writing addressing all the big subjects beautifully: Life, Death, and Art. All from the point of view of this strangely lovable, dysfunctional, selfish, immature wretch of a man. The plot is great, but it's the writing that really drives it. Hector's voice is unforgettable and painfully of-the-moment. What a portrait of the pretentious, solipsistic, empty-hearted gets that society's avant-garde is birthing. Hilarious climax, too. Don't delay! Buy! Read!!

I had a look at your listmania 'films for the thinking', i would rename it 'films for spotty little erberts'. Shawn of the Dead, one of the worst films ever made, and the rest where mainly inane American teen horrors. Complete rubbish.
