Hud (Martin Ritt, 1963) 10/10 Elegiac modern Western, set in dusty Texas, is part family conflict and part mourning for the old ways of the frontier days. The brilliant screenplay (based on a novel by Larry McMurtry) incorporates in an almost greek tragedy fashion a simmering tension ridden relation...

Re: Green Book reviews

Olivia Colman being campaigned for lead and Emma Stone and Rachel Weisz in support for The Favourite is a rare exception. Oh is this how the studios are going with their campaign? If so, then the studio just lost their chance to win an Oscar for this film. Colman has no chance of winning in the lea...

Re: European trip

Well, I must admit London exceeded my expectations. I had been moaning when my partner planned and mapped out the trip that I didn't want to visit London, but I'm so glad we did and I would love to go back. We caught buses around mainly so me could get a good eyeful of the city and rarely used the ...
