    Cinema is alive and kicking! And it's name is Christopher Nolan.

    You're going to lose your minds over this!

    If you need me, I'll be picking mine off the floor and scraping what's left back through my eyes and ears.

    Perhaps I'm just giddy about being allowed back into a cinema. Or could I just be breathless because I've been wearing a mask for 3 hours? Who knows?!

    What. A. Film!

And despite feeling like a cross between A Woman, a Gun and a Noodle Shop and Martyrs this still manages to come across as being utterly original.

    Still feels fresh. Laugh out loud funny, sends up the genre perfectly, and Cage is excellent.

    An all round bona-fide British classic. Heart-warmingly funny with a top notch cast and tremendous effects. Could become a Christmas favourite for all the family.
