Seen very annoying U.K. film just now - "Caretaker"/ "Guest" (1963). Donald Pleasance, Robert Shaw, Alan Bates. Based at Harold Pinter play. 2 cool thespians playing 2 real pains in the neck (funnily, by diametrically different reasons). It shoulda stayed in stage, didn't bring use to get the idea to get it to screen. Funny it's got financial support by big names like Liz Taylor, Richard Burton, Noel Coward, long list with these names. Zero idea who's Alan Bates, the other guy in film playing Robert's crazy brother. I.e. 3 differently annoying guys saying things that defy logic. Film runs 1h:43m - during it, *little* changed. Despite it being the finished version, film's finale - Donald's houseless hero mumbling the same question to Robert with beggar's eyes to stay be caretaker, sleep in the attic room like he did, whilst Robert stands with his back, busy looking thru window - didn't use chance to justify play's shift to screen. Nor did explain insanity going in film. When I've zero idea what's going in film, by default such film's boring. 0/10.

"Who Cooked Bacon Sandwich With Human Ear? Is It Yummy?" - experimental 2010 rare U.S. student short suspense sci-fi neo-noir b&w film (exchange students been studying in the city & displayed film to students back in 2013). 4.9/5, mainly due to it lacking little punch.

Cool to review films, really like typing reviews about films that been liked & been hated. 3D

"Night & The City" - you can see by title it's film noir. When it went - the film - it began to be dark, angry beneath, everybody hated main guy when it finished. Wrestling match didn't bring fruitful results, big money to main guy. He ain't witty at business, he cheated everybody (even dear gal that cherished him) with dumb moves & took many-many troubles till Greek wrestler's boy killed him due to revenge. It's good film but film which isn't to view it many times. It's good to view single time in year.

NB: re: previous review about Italian flick "Dolce Vita" - Nico fans, be delighted to be aware that few scenes in this snoozer film feature beautiful ravishing very young (21 y.o.) Nico. She really moves like cat - biggest nicety towards women/ people generally. Graceful, light moves. Liked her flirty laughters she gave when she danced with random guy. She's really attractive when she laughs like it. & even when she dons stupid-looking knight helmet when she & the other random people went to see smb.'s locked castle (Nico found key 3D ) - even when she stood there in helmet she looks gorgeous. Entire castle scene is too bizarre to describe (as is everything else in "Dolce Vita") - seeing Nico been saving grace.

It will interest poster Gettin Hungry: since you like Peter Sellers, yesterday seen 1970s film ''Alice In Wonderland'', Peter plays Mad Hatter. It's the best AIW, with classic Disney cartoon & the b&w 1933 film. Check out it.

Diff. news - seen ''Dragonwyck'' (1946) ft. Gene Tierney, young Vincent Price, young Jessica Tandy, Walter ''distinct speaking voice'' Huston, sweet Spring Biington. Frankly, disappointed at young Vincent, he'll get better in classic cult horrors. Gene's very talented actress but, like everybody who's too beautiful, rarely did anybody in Hollywood see it. It's dark film but wouldn't designate it ''horror''. 6/10.

Thanks for the recommendation. I don't think I've seen that version of Alice in Wonderland. I actually just reread the book earlier this year. I'll have to check it out. I love the Disney version.

I've been a James Stewart kick. Just watched Rear Window, Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and Anatomy of a Murder. All three very good. I've got Philadelphia Story and Stratton Story on deck.

I also saw the latest Star Wars.

Last weekend we watched Quadrophenia on a biggish screen. It's a fascinating backward glimpse of a conflict (Mods vs Rockers) that largely passed me by. Some great music by The Who and lotsa good stuff during the club scenes. And dig those last three letters of the YouTube url!!

Will be watching... The first episode of the second series of The Split is later tonight (9 PM in the UK, 10 PM in NL).

I'm a major fan of Nicola Walker, so I'll be glued to my seat in more ways than one. LOL

We're back to Shetland, a series we had problems understanding because of the accents but which is now on Dutch TV with subtitles!

Needless to say, the landscape is fantastic!
