FT Top 100 Films
75: Rushmore
I love Wes Anderson, but his films don’t appeal to everyone. This probably stands or falls for most on whether they find Max, a brilliant but troubled teen played superbly by Jason Schwartzman, tolerable and believ[…]

Liisa Lounila – “Popcorn”
Some months ago I went to see the Liisa Lounila show at the Anthony Wilkinson Gallery. I loved it: I went several times and dragged a few (un)fortunates along with me to see it. I didn’t write about i[…]

FT Top 100 Films
76: The Philadelphia Story
I don’t know if we call this romantic or screwball comedy, and it doesn’t much matter, except that it does seem to have the best qualities of both, and more. It has the sophistication and shine […]

Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter…and Spring. Well the title tells you everything. Do you get the hint – this is one of those cyclical, history repeating itself things. So past Autumn, do not look for any surprises. Instead look for a nice p[…]

Relatively Fashionable Gastropub Report #1: The Anchor And Hope
Having missed out on the ‘4 Ox Heart sandwiches which were my planned breakfast on Saturday, I was pleased to return to the Anchor & Hope for some St John related goodness. I […]

FT Top 100 Films 77: THE LOST BOYS
Read post

Corey? Really? That’s not a name.
The Lost Boys is the definitive 80’s vampire movie. That’s not to say it is any good. But it bundles the Reaganomics and brat pack ideologies into a big ball and spews them out with all the usual me[…]
