  • Margin Call 2011

    ★★★ Watched 19 Nov, 2014

    Watched in three sittings. And it grew on me. Or it may gave been the jet lag?

    Either way, I wouldn't have guessed that this particular subject matter could be dramatised and hold your attention.
    It's interesting to think what you would do if placed in the circumstances these characters find themselves. There are no good answers, really.

    Do you like Phil Collins?

    Actually, I do.

    I am a bit young for Genesis, to be honest, but still appreciate their later work. Their two-part live album "The Way We Walk" is a go-to selection. Especially "That's All" and "Throwing It All Away", featuring the sublime keyboards of Tony Banks (who? exactly!)

    But, his solo albums, while much maligned, will eventually get the credit they deserve. I'm sure.

    Granted, there are some cheesy singles, and "In The Air Tonight"…

  • Upstream Color 2013

    ★★ Watched 20 Jan, 2014

    96 mins is a long time to feel as lost as I found myself watching this.

    This film sounds amazing. Shut your eyes.
