The Story

Nothing behind me, everything ahead of me, as is ever so on the road.

LFF

I said it would take something special to stop Under The Skin from being my favourite film of this year’s London Film Festival. Blue Is The Warmest Colour is that something special. A three hour film that I could of quite happily watched another three hours of. Breathtaking.

My first film of this year’s London Film Festival will take a lot of beating to not end up as my favourite film of this year’s London Film Festival.

After a rigorous elimination process, Under The Skin and Blue Is The Warmest Colour triumphed as the films I’ll be seeing at LFF this year.

London FIlm Festival

If I wasn’t having to be fiscally disciplined this month, I’d seriously be tempted to buy tickets for each of these films at LFF:

  • 12 Years a Slave
  • Gravity 
  • Inside Llewyn Davis 
  • Labor Day
  • Blue Is the Warmest Colour
  • Don Jon
  • Nebraska
  • The Double
  • Under The Skin
  • Kill Your Darlings
The last thing you want when trying to save for an around the world trip is an upcoming London Film Festival with a line up that could arguably be the best of the festival year. Typically that’s just what the BFI have gone and done. Currently got the abacus going in an attempt to work out how many films I can financially justify seeing.

Double cinema sessions are my favourite, especially when it’s two films from this year that I thought I’d missed for good.

How do you spend a rainy evening in the capital? Going to see one of your all time favourites on the big screen is a good place to start.

It’s been months since my last visit to the BFI. By far one of my favourite places in London to hang out, even when not catching a film, it has been so long that I’d started to miss it. Today’s lunchtime dash to get tickets for James Franco’s Screen Epiphanies screening of Psycho has fixed that.

The last few trips to the cinema have been slightly underwhelming. This will change on Wednesday with a viewing of Labyrinth at the BFI. 1986 was a good year.

I was recently asked, if I could have someone else’s voice, whose would I choice. I answered with James Stewart. Now look who turned up on my new BFI membership card. JIMMY!
