    RING OF BRIGHT WATER

    Bill Travers, Virginia McKenna in some stunning tartan skirts and an otter that comes to a brutal end. This film traumatised me deeply as a kid.
    The shark hunt is brilliant, though. They harpoon a shark, cut it up, buy a rickety oil driven freezer and put the sharkmeat in it.

    Vardy.....¡¡¡PELIGRO!!!

    for those in the UK/ able to find it elsewhere, Terry Nutkin did a piece on the time he spent with Gavin Maxwell (author of Ring Of Bright Water), broadcast on Radio 4 last week, still on iPlayer for now...

        This was a good listen.I like the way Uncle Tel narrates aswell.Look forward to this weeks episode.

        I watched 'Man of Violence' and the extra film on the dvd 'The Big Switch' both Pete Walker films from the late 60s. The former is a bit slow but the latter is a nice groovy piece of late 60s drama with Timebox appearing at the start all pepped up playing some soul jam.

          saw the Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus last night and
          it was pretty good. A lot better than Baron Munchausen but
          not as good as Brazil. There were some memorable bits, Lily Cole
          in a gondala with just her bra & panties on was tastefully done and
          Jude Law walking around the countryside in 100ft high stilts with a
          manic grin on his face, just the usual bonkers Gilliam fare then.

          Going to see The Hurt Locker on Wednesday, saw a trailer for it last
          week and it looks incredibly tense & exciting.

            First episodes of season 4 have been a bit disappointing though

              'Generation Kill' for me - this is the second time around for me and I still think it's superb television.

                  You've got to admire Nutkins' commitment to untamed side tufts. And otters, of course.

                  The other thing that struck me about ROBW is that everyone in the small west Highland village has a strained RADA Morningside accent. Virginia McKenna sounds positively South African at times.

                              Bang go my dreams of a cinema thread where we can all discuss our favourite ouevres and auteurs, then.
