    Escape at Dannemora

    ★★★★

    Ben Stiller really directed the shit out of this limited series. Based on (very recent) true events, Escape at Dannemora is sturdy as all hell, thanks to the key performances from Dano, del Toro, Arquette and Lange.

    We'll be discussing episodes 5, 6 and 7 of this show on an upcoming episode of the Is Paul Dano OK? podcast, where we previously covered the first four eps. Come find us!

    The fact that the victim's mother pretty much nudged her daughter into the fateful situation does not excuse having sex with a 13 year old girl.

    Thank jeebus for Letterboxd. For years I've been doing the "Bond Marathon" before the latest 007 adventure. For years I thought I was the only sad fucker who endured all twenty something films in preparation for the next slice of kiss kiss, bang bang. There's a few that have more or less concluded this little ritual, but seeing as Skyfall ain't out until 26th October I thought I'd slowly work my way through them, starting now.

    So... Dr No. The…
