As I opined to Steve, I'm rather choosy when it comes to films. I don't care much for the gritty stories in 'real' life dramas. The art of the likes of Leigh and Loach is to be applauded but I see enough keech in my daily world without wishing to be reminded of it when I'm gorging on my toffee coated popcorn in the stalls.
No it must be escapism for me, something to take the edge of, a horror, a chiller, even a B-movie...in fact the dark tale of The Black Swan, and the sight of Portman - Kunis entwined is all your humble narrator needs in the way of escape.
And talking of escape, I've a big thank you for Scottish author extraordinaire and Metal Head, Mark Rice...a hard copy of his latest work, the short story Revelation Was Wrong...out now for the Kindle priced a recession busting 77 Scots pence!
See your friendly neighbourhood Amazon website to procure your digital copy.
I'm listening to a 1980 inspired playlist this morning - and rather good it is too...

Victim of Illusion - MSG
