  1. good to know, going to see it on saturday :) has been one i’ve been looking forward to for aaaaaaaaaages (ok about 5 weeks)

    was going to go to the industry screening today but wanted to get the full blockbuster experience sold out on saturday, altho i do so love the vast personal space the industry screenings give you

    [nice use of the expletive btw, that’s the best way to use ‘em]

  4. that’s the best way to use ‘em

    I dunno - I think saying, ‘abso-cunting-lutely’ or ‘congratu-fucking-lations’ or similar is more gratifying.

    But then I say ‘Tits in a wigwam!’ all the time, so what do I know about swearing?

    This comment is going to look most odd when I add the review up there…

  6. Yeah - that would be the problem with the Film Festival. They need to do at least three screenings per film, more for big ones like this. Dunno if there’s enough screens in Edinburgh for that, though!

  7. Have no fear - it opens in the GFT on 24th September. All is well with the world.

  10. I really enjoyed Zatoichi, have you seen that?

  11. Not heard of that one, Matt - will have to check it out. I’m a big fan of Violent Cop etc., so a period piece by Kitano sounds very interesting (although I can’t imagine a film by him without guns, lots of guns).

  12. I can give you a copy of Zatoichi, Jack. I love Hana Bi and just bought a copy of that and Sonatine. Not seen Violent Cop yet. Hana Bi hasn’t got that many guns, really.
