    like cigarette burns or midnight movies or one of those. how easy is it to do? can you expect to break even or is it a total loss making venture? are hire costs set in stone or do venues negotiate? anyone here ever been part of a film club?

    erotic capital and 'honey money' so there's this new book out about this. ive read a few columns about it. the argument (apart from reminding us, just in case the non-superficial society we live in made us forget, that good looks and charm can do...

    classic directors/films you dont get

    saw tarkovskys solaris last night. was looking forward to it for a while as i liked the soderbergh remake with clooney though thought it was a little too taut/efficient so assumed the original would give it more space to breathe. and it did. to a ridiculous extent. tbh it might have been cos i...
