Of Horses and Men

Nearly gave up!

(Edit) 22/01/2020

We did almost turn this off about ten minutes. Probably the same point where other reviewers have said 'this is sick'. However we did persevere. The stars are the horses (beautiful and such excellent actors ) and the scenery. It is oddball and it grew on us. It was a day or so later when we set to each other 'actually that was quite a good film'. It does make you think that Icelanders are a breed apart. Certainly one we'll remember

Absolute Beginners

best soundtrack of the 80s

(Edit) 13/08/2019

We last saw this film when it came out but bought the soundtrack - on cassette! - and listened to it for years. We were keen to see how it had aged and the verdict was 'well'. It still looks stylish. How could it not with both David Bowie and Sade in it. Top points (still) for soundtrack and choreography. The sets, from a pre CGI era, are witty and inventive. In fact the reason we went to see it in the cinema when if came out was because our neighbour was involved in the special effects. The acting is wooden and some of the editing stilted but it gets by on sheer exuberence.
