4.0 out of 5 stars Horribly Addictive, 7 April 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: London In The Raw [Blu-ray] [1964] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Blu ray is having a weird effect on me - I will watch literally anything if the picture is pristine perfect. I recognised this worrying fact whilst viewing this BFI blu of London in the Raw. The picture is amazing - you have never seen the 60s looking like this - but what the hell am I watching? A sweaty guy balancing 5 glasses of wine on his head, an excruciating hair transplant operation, folk jiving, not one but 2 numbers from a provincial Jewish musical that I will never witness again outside of a nightmare, a cat eating chicken, beatniks eating cat food, some music hall (as bad as the hair op) and a meagre smattering of nudity. On and on it goes, my patience wavered many times but never quite broke - it looks so good, you see. Anyone recommend a good shrink?

Hmm... The shock of the new. I recall the same thrill in 1974 when our family first had a colour TV set when I was twelve. For the first two weeks I would watch literally anything and everything purely because it was in colour. Do I really care about cooking and sports? I suppose nowadays HD clarity is the nearest thing you'll get to time travel. Don't worry, the thrill will wear off and you'll soon be blase about it all, until they invent a downloading ASB thingy into your brain via a forehead socket.
