You may have noticed the absence of this feature last week. I had a couple of attempts at spinning news items into a topic but, not only did I struggle to make a connection, I then had to look too hard for appropriate films. The project – or its author – is getting stale after 80 outings.
So this is maybe not farewell but it is at least adieu. I’ll leave you with a recommendation though: Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. It’s becoming the Oscar front runner and I’m very happy about that (the US Academy was never going to make Elle best picture…), as it is a beautifully played tragi-comedy where nothing is straight-forward and it becomes increasingly difficult to condemn the bad behaviour being indulged in.
So, for the time being, That’s All Folks!
