Bleak House Season 1
Bleak House Season 1
Dvd
Price: £18.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Superbly acted and in every way masterly and thrilling until ..., 29 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Superbly acted and in every way masterly and thrilling until the inappropriate and superfluous dance routine at the very end. The key roles of Lady Dedlock and Mr Tulkinghorn are taken to particular perfection.

The Man Between (Digitally Restored) [DVD] [2016]
Dvd ~ James Mason

3.0 out of 5 stars Three Stars, 29 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Flashes of filmic brilliance but ultimately a somewhat disappointing first cousin to The Third Man.

The 5,000 Fingers Of Dr. T.

5.0 out of 5 stars as fresh and funny today as when first screened several decades ago, 29 Aug. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An endlessly inventive musical and visual treat, as fresh and funny today as when first screened several decades ago. No more ludicrous dictator has been portrayed than in Hans Conreid's brilliant performance as Dr Terwilliker. Regrettably, real-life replicas of his demented style of narcissistic tyranny still exist worldwide, impervious to the ferocious satire of Carrollian adult-films-for-children like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars First thing we learn from history? We learn nothing from history., 15 Jun. 2017
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An echo of European history that resonates ominously with resurgent and current socio-geographic concerns but does not discount the factor of interacting individual personalities both powerful and weak. Beautifully written and not a little disquieting, given the irony of its title..

3.0 out of 5 stars Personally disappointed, 2 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Portsmouth still has some interesting and well-preserved time-warp pubs but none of those that I remember myself - they were all lost in the blitz - are in the book, and I was particularly sorry not to find the one in which I was born.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too quirky by half?, 2 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Boulez Conducts Ligeti (Audio CD)
I had never tasted Ligeti until listening to an orchestral encore at the recent Proms - the finale of his Romanian Concerto - which I found brilliant, as did the audience. The only other of his works I have liked so far is his piece for 100 metronomes. But he is such an amazingly prolific composer that he must have something for everyone.
