did i tell you i watched lawrence of arabia the other day. quite a weird film. 'problematic' my friend said. sort
of sticks with you though. who wouldnt want to command an army of ferociously loyal savages
watched in the mood for love. pretty. nice colours. i want to live in a sweaty cramped city with night markets
drinking a whisky soda at 1am eating some noodles. its a shame london is so hopelessly parochial and everything
shuts at 9pm
Someone mentioned the film Evilenko which is a dramatisation of the life of Russian serial killer Chikotilo, today we watched another one called Citizen X which, apart from the bizarre setting which makes 80s and 90s Russia look like a medieval country peopled by headscarf wearing peasants, is a very good film. Great performances from Donald Sunderland and the main guy, plus Max Von Sydow as a psychologist and the dad from Billions as the psychopath himself. Worth checking.
