    The Blair Witch Project

    ★★★

    Good concept. The structured ramping up of tension is great. The improvised acting works well. But horror just isn't my genre.

  • Being There

    Being There

    ★★★★★

    A blank canvas can be misinterpreted many ways. A simple idea that's played out in full. With wit, with subtlety and with a wonderful, less is more, performance from Peter Sellers at its heart.

    Mr Jolly Lives Next Door

    ★★★

    God, Rik Mayall was a force of nature.

    Mr Jolly Lives Next Door was directed by Stephen Frears immediately prior to his work on Dangerous Liaisons. There are some thematic and tonal differences between the two films.

  • The Devils

    The Devils

    ★★★★★

    A thought for each star:

    1) Ken Russell at his craziest makes Lars von Trier look basic

    2) Oliver Reed was a hell of an actor

    3) The influence on Terry Gilliam is obvious

    4) There's substance beyond the plastic crocodile and the nun orgy

    5) I accept zero stars as an equally valid opinion
