1.0 out of 5 stars Is politics a four letter word?, 7 Oct. 2015
Depressing, full of nastiness. Possibly representative of politics, hopefully not of the world. Thankfully not my world anyway.

1.0 out of 5 stars The honourable self absorbed bore, 23 Sept. 2015
This review is from: The Honourable Woman [DVD] (DVD)
Like watching grass grow, but less satisfying. Grossly overacted, endlessly repetitive, yet still managing to be confusing. Still, others apparently enjoyed it immensely.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greek music 101, 2 Aug. 2015
This is the music that got me hooked on Mikis Theodorakis and Maria Farantouri. What a fabulous music partnership. Farantouri's unique dramatic voice and style complements Theodorakis' music magically. A partnership so productive that it has lasted 45 years that I know of, through thick and thin and Theodorakis' spell as a political prisoner. Wonderful.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some wonderful tracks there., 24 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
All the best tracks are there, as well as some I like less. With a compilation like this you can always skip a few.

Mime meets clown meets ballet.
Totally delightful. I saw his previous snow show live in the theatre, equally wonderful. Anyone know if that's out on DVD as well? I'd love to see it again.

1.0 out of 5 stars Appalling violence, 10 May 2013
This review is from: Good Cop [DVD] (DVD)
I don't know how people can even watch so much violence. Halfway through the second episode I couldn't stomach any more and decided life was too short to follow such black dysfunctionalism.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great entertainment, 15 Mar. 2013
This review is from: Foul Play ( Killing Lydia ) (DVD)
Hugely entertaining comedy, good story, well acted. No deep and meaningfuls or hidden messages. No significant blood and guts, just an umbrella! Thoroughly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Concert in Athens, 18 Feb. 2013

This review is from: Concert in Athens (Audio CD)
It is lovely, but duplicates other CDs I have. Also I missed the Greek instruments. Nothing by Karaindrou could be less than lovely though.

2.0 out of 5 stars Silence...and lacklustre, 18 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Compared to other fado CDs I have, this lacked life, energy and emotion. I found it depressing. I bought it because I like fado and this had excellent reviews.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mind blowingly beautiful, 12 Feb. 2013
Both visually and musically I found this disc mesmerising. Takes me to another planet. I had the cd already, also 5 star, but the DVD adds immeasurably to my enjoyment. What a wonderful composer of Greek music, and the soloists are brilliant as well. 7 out of 5 stars describe my experience better.
