  • Very much enjoyed watching the 1968 film "Hammerhead" for the first time last night - after having had the excellent soundtrack (by David Whittaker) for over 10 years now.

    Featuring Diana Dors and a host of supporting brit actors seemingly drawn from 60s/70s sit-coms (Father Dear Father, It Ain't Half Hot Mum) it's a fun but odd watch.

    The 3 best sequences feature an "art" happening at the Roundhouse, the character "Ivory" dancing round her yacht cabin to an impossibly groovy track on her reel to reel... (sadly this piece is not on the OST Lp) and Judy Geeson miming the Madeline Bell sung title theme...

    This trailer gives the flavour:

    • "The swinging Portuguese coast; where the action is" That's going on my list of things I must see, at any cost.

      • Watched this recently - had no idea the Johnny Harris track "belonged" to this film

        • JOKER

          Film of the year for me. Almost it's own hybrid of character study, social commentary and art film. Exactly what I look for nowadays. Even the nods to Taxi driver, French connection, Network, Dog day afternoon and Nolan's Joker were subtle and suggestive and not the usual cute easter eggs. More please!

          • Giri / Haji - watched the first two episodes so far, excellent stuff, nice visuals, etc - crime thriller set in London and Tokyo.

            also legal comedy series Defending The Guilty is great.


            Also am watching an enjoyable but slightly naff Spanish heist series, think it's from a couple of years ago: Money Heist (originally La Casa De Papel in Spanish). Thought it was only three parts and was pleased to see something short on Netflix, but the "parts" turned out to be three series

            • Sahsiyet - a brilliant Turkish crime/drama series from 2018. Definitely the best crime series I have watched jn ages (and I have watched many). Witty, fast, dramatic, excellent in every aspect. Highly recommended

                • The new RAMBO and TERMINATOR are irrelevant crap.
