    Will Tida Swinton only work with Bomg Joon-Ho if she has bad teeth? Also - nice Bob Dylan reference and possible ref to Johnny Morris’ ‘Animal Magic’.

    Wonderful. Spry, very funny and slyly political. File under 'essential viewing'.

    Reflections in a Golden Eye


    A bizarre film for sure but a pretty faithful adaptation of McCullers' novel. Definitely gets the Southern Gothic tone right. There are scenes here you don't expect to see in a 1960s studio film (note - it came out in 1967 - the year Mark Harris focuses on in his brilliant book Scenes from a Revolution about the birth of the New Hollywood). Worth watching also for the unusual golden palette, Brando and Taylor of course, as well as Robert Forster's feature film debut.
