So here we go again, the Millbrooker Towers film 2012 film season began last week with a rollicking piece of hokum from Quentin Tarantino (general verdict on Inglourious Basterds seemed to be positive).
And this coming Sunday we shall continue with another quite modern offering Gustave de Kervern and Benoit Delepine's 2010 road-movie-cum-black-comedy-cum-drama Mammuth.
And the reason, for those interested, that this particular film got onto the film club watching list was this review.
Depardieu can be a bit of an acquired taste - I've seen him in wonderful form (in Jean de Florette for example) and he's made some absolute stinkers as well. Let's hope the critics are right and that Mammuth is one of his best performances for ages - we'll find out at the usual time and in the usual place . . .
Hope to see all the usual suspects there.
