This week’s classic movie: Do The Right Thing. A story about racism and police brutality that’s as relevant today as it was 30 years ago. How fucking depressing.
Start ups. It’s all fun and games until you realise you’ve been building a division of Amazon or Google.
This week’s classic movie: Taxi Driver. A slow, plodding story that lacks any depth, overt attempts at being stylish that come across as clumsy, a soundtrack that irritates. Was already disliking this film; its all-too-neat ending pushed me towards outright hatred. Not a fan.
Next in my run of classic movies: Dr. Strangelove. Putting to one side the still worryingly contemporary theme of nuclear armageddon, I very much enjoyed the levity and wit of Peter Sellers’ three main characters. Another film with great titles, too!
Unplanned third consecutive day on the bike with a trip from Littlehampton to Brighton. With the wind behind me and bright skies above, the perfect way to enjoy Good Old Sussex by the Sea.
St. John the Baptist Church, Boldre.
Continuing my run of classic movies, just watched Vertigo. Beautiful sets, stylish cinematography, a gripping storyline and delicious Saul Bass titles, what’s not to love!?
