    "The only way police can neutralise bomb-dogs is to spray them with a resin coating which hardens instantly to contain any explosion. The inside of the bomb-dog is obviously destroyed, but the outside stays the same shape. However, if the underside is not covered, a highly directional blast launches the animal vertically to a height of over a thousand feet."

    "Doctor, don't! It could kill us!"

    "Unfortunately, so could Hindle."

    Peter Davison's third story, and one of my all-time favorites. The script has so many layers and implications that are only hinted at, and what is there is gripping and unique and carries a real sense of everyone trying to make the best production of it that they could.

    "Things change, Harold. Don't get nostalgic."

    An absolutely brilliant script for Hoskins and Mirren at the height of their powers. Their relationship is really the factor keeping the stakes high and the plot pulling along. The music is great, the filmmaking is rough and ready, lovely cast. Fabulous British gangster film with more than a few layers to it, also bonus yung Brosnan.

I've never seen Garden State, about which I am reasonably proud, but I do love The Graduate, I really liked Greenberg (the ultimate graduate), and I loved Tiny Furniture. I'm sure, if viewed from a certain angle, this could seem like an indie-gazing navel fest, but something in Lena Dunham's delivery of the scenario, her character, the mopey realism, really charmed me. I simply enjoyed this movie and I want to see her make more of them.

    This movie is deeply unpleasant and unsettling. It's actually a dreadful, awful experience being in its company throughout its running time. It is also one of the best films I have ever seen. Unlike Memento, to which it could clearly be compared in terms of structure, there is an actual point to the storytelling trickery, that of peeling back the layers from revenge to crime to peace. It's a fascinating way to get to know a set of characters, and…
