About

I developed a real love of cinema during my time as an English Lit student. Stuck in deepest, darkest Wales with no money and no TV, I turned to the university’s film archives for entertainment. Here, I was lucky enough to stumble across some of the greatest films from around the world.

I’ve started this blog so that I can share some of these amazing movies with you. I’ll be offering a crash course into world cinema, as well as reviewing a range of films, from art-house to blockbuster.

      • I’ve only been going for a year but I put a lot of work in at the beginning. It can end up being hard work at first but don’t lose hope. The follwers and comments will come. So much so, that you’ll find it hard keeping on top of things. I hope you keep at it. It’ll definitely pay off. Nice to make your aquainance Georgina :-)

      • Nice to meet you too! I’ve taken a look at The LAMB, what a great resource…two more months and I might be eligible, fingers crossed. Thank-you for the advice, much appreciated :)

  1. Myself being a designer, am captivated by your blog design. A very good choice of template indeed!
    Its neat, the colors..gorgeous, written in fonts Abel and Dosis (two of myt fav btw)…it just beckons to be read.
    Keep up the good work!

  2. Hi Just a little correction on your review of The Bed You Sleep In – I am not sure what you mean by “doesn’t have a soundtrack” but if you mean there’s no music, that’s not correct: there is a rather lush and lively and somber (depending on where in the film) track by Erling Wold (who has done now a number of films for me). See http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/erlingwold3 for the track of it, and http://erlingwold.com/works.html for full information on Erling and his work. The DVD you saw was made without my permission or collaboration, illegally, and both the terrible transfer for DVD, and the graphics were fully the responsibility of Henry Rosenthal and the now defunct company. I have a much better (though off a somewhat used print with French subtitles burned in) DVD of it I sell. 25 quid + 2 postage http://www.jon-jost.com
    You should really see a few others – from Last Chants for a Slow Dance (in book 1001 film you must see before you die), to – well there’s too many to list. email is clarandjon@msn.com
    Love the Bristol camera obscura. best jon

  3. Thank you for dropping by and reading, Jon, it means a lot to have you comment on my blog. It was a while since I saw the film, and I didn’t recall a music soundtrack when writing – I shall amend my review accordingly. In fact, I’d love to see the film again, so will look into buying a copy. It’s certainly one of the best films of the past 20 years.

    I’m sorry to hear that the version I saw was made without your permission – I found it in the DVD library whilst at university, so shall inform them of that error. I am, of course, completely against this, and had no idea as to the source of the film – my aim is to endorse interdependent filmmakers and local cinema in any way I can.

    Thank you for the further information, I’d be delighted to have a full list of films and recommendations to work my way through, starting with Last Chants for a Slow Dance. If you do visit Bristol again then be sure to talk to the Watershed and Cube cinemas about screenings of your work – you’d have a captive audience. All the best, Georgina.
