5.0 out of 5 stars A brilliant read, 22 Mar. 2014

This book is a thoughtful insight into a life we see on a regular basis, but normally give it a wide berth.
Underneath the surface is a day to day struggle to get by and conquer your demons.
An uplifting page turner. Thank you James.

3.0 out of 5 stars Clint Eastwood's Bird, 26 Oct. 2010
I am a jazz fan. I like films about jazz musicians. I was very lukewarm about the film by Clint Eastwood about Charlie Parker.
Clint is a massive jazz fan and his enthusiasm shows in this portrayal of Parker. Forrest Whittaker plays Parker well, but not convincingly. The action seems based heavily around an incident, whilst jamming with another band. The cymbal throwing of the drummer is well documented but is repeated in the film too many times.
Bird is portrayed as a likeable rogue who went off the rails.
I have read that he was selfish, ego-centric and manipulative man. Most of all he was a genius, but with extreme amounts of baggage, which I felt the film only touched upon.

Shot superbly well and atmospheric with original Parker on the soundtrack, a good effort but possibly hard work for the non jazz lover.

3.0 out of 5 stars Morvan Callar, 30 May 2009

This review is from: Morvern Callar [DVD] (DVD)
A dark smouldering film. With no real joyful bits and limited dialogue.
I loved it!!!
Not your normal run of the mill fun time film.
If you want alternative then this one hits the mark.
