And Now The Screening Stops...

Hello. Haven't been away or gone mad or anything - BT are just fucking my internet connection around. Arseholes. Anyway...

Martyrs. (2008) dir. Pascal Laugier, starring Morjana Alaoui, Mylene Jampanoi,

I wouldn't watch this. Here's what you do: go and watch Radiohead's video for "Just". It's exactly the same as this story except you don't have to put up with an hour of watching a woman being skinned alive. The more I watch "transgressive" cinema the more I like seventies' children's television. What is wrong with a kindly rag and bone man? There were no starved tortured women in "Egghead's robot" - there was Roy Kinnear, a brace of Chegwins and a whole lot of running about.


  1. I wish they would show Stig of the dump. My childhood fantasy was to live in a dump with a caveman.

    Be careful what you wish for.

  2. Anyway, i am glad you are alright. I thought you might have gone into hypergycemic shock after binging on yellowman.

  3. I've been binging on Paul Nicholas' "Reggae like it used to be" - I always liked glam droog rubber legged stylings. Now that's a sentence and a half.
