For its time, it was graphic for a TV show. Maybe over time you've been jaded due to modern expectations. ;) Anyway, graphic or not, it's still gripping and raises some telling points.

Yeah, I think after three months, it shows that something is truly amiss. A few weeks might be understandable, but this "temporary" is taking a bit of an age. Still, who knows for sure, seeing that...

The Road

Not a bad adaptation of the Cormac McCarthy's bleak book. Captured most of the author's intent.

4/5

The Tales of Hoffmann

On a similar note, may I suggest Mickey Rooney in Breakfast at Tiffany's. It couldn't have been worse if instead they had put in Father Ted doing his "I am Chinese" impression. Really like the film,...

Criminally lost this tie in the first game. Still, we were so near at the end that it ends up hurting more. Good performance tonight, that has to be said, but it's disappointing to be going out...

Found it amusing that that film was part of a selection of Valentine's Day films at my local Sainsbury's. A film that might well give second thoughts about any budding relationship. ;)

Yeah, she'd have probably enjoyed it.

I suppose I'll echo the rape scene in Scum. I'll also add the rape scene in Man Bites Dog, too. On another tack, the end scene in Funny Games, where the woman...
