went to see Shutter Island today and LOVED IT!
Not even a big Di Caprio fan. He’s not my type to lust after but he does have a great screen presence and gave a stellar performance.
I am though a big Dennis Lehane fan, ‘Mystic River’ and ‘Gone Baby Gone’ were good reads transformed into excellent films that would definitely be on my Best Films list.
Shutter Island is a different type of story altogether and has got me excited about the fact that I have two new Lehane’s sitting here waiting to be read.
Yesterday I watched ‘This Is England’, about the UK circa 1983, it was interesting but disturbing, partly because it wasn’t what I was expecting, but also it brought back a lot of memories. I remember the National Front being outside our school gate with their membership forms and posters, telling us there’d be no jobs for us school leavers because the ‘Pakis’ had them all.
I just finished a great Val Mcdermid, for anyone who is fond of crime/police/profiler fiction, she is the Queen and deserves the capital Q.
Now reading another crime fiction by a new author Leigh Russell.
Meanwhile it poured down all day. The Man is away at a funeral in Hiroshima won’t be back until tomorrow.
The cat being away the mouse played ‘let’s watch Dr Phil until 2 a.m.’ I love life on the edge.
