    Only watched for Sharon Horgan. That's as good a reason to watch anything really.

    I'll have Silly Games playing in my head forever.

    After Mangrove Steve McQueen takes a completely different approach and the results are truly euphoric. And I'd say this uses the small screen setting in a more experimental way and is less conventional than Mangrove in its form. Again the sense of time and space is exquisite, the camera work is like a dream and I feel like I'm on Cloud 9.

    ★★★★½

    If there is one thing in this world that I am sure of, it would be that 'Pom Poko' would hands down win the award for most bizarre use of testicles in film history!

    ★★★★★

    "God's holy trousers!"

    Sumptuous entertainment, wonderful chemistry between Michael Caine and Sean Connery, majestic locations and photography. The film has the expansiveness of 'Lawrence of Arabia' at times and also has much in common with John Huston's own, 'The Treasure of the Sierra Madre' in regards to the cautionary tale of pursuing treasures and gold. There is fine banter in the script and much fine adventuring is had along the way, it is just so damn easy to watch and enjoy. 'The Man Who Would Be King' is entertainment fit for deities and Englishmen alike.
