Became my favourite film for some time until I read the end of Orton's diaries. Haven't watched it since but I will again because Oldman and Molina are absolutely brilliant. The arrogance of Joe oozes from every pore of Oldman's portrayal. And Halliwell's move from intellectually and emotionally superior into his descent into neediness, madness and, I would say 'paranoia' but I think his worries (not his actions) were quite justified by Joe's behaviour, is absolutely heart-wrenching. And I never turn down a chance to see Julie Walters in anything, even for a few minutes.
