This week we get unnecessarily vengeful about a children’s Christmas film.
Off the Shelf features Nagisa Oshima’s Cruel Story of Youth and Haskell Wexler’s Medium Cool – both from Masters of Cinema. Meanwhile, Ryan delves into the underrated Sympathy for Lady Vengeance and Graham takes on Pop Goes the Easel – Ken Russell’s portrait of artists Peter Blake, Derek Boshier, Pauline Boty, and Peter Phillips. Our Film of the Week is Legend – the Tom Hardy delivery vehicle based upon the story of notorious London gangsters the Kray twins.
Now if you’ll excuse us, we’re off to flash our wad of unpopular opinions.
