"Finding Vivian Maier" looks interesting. Anyone seen it yet? Jonathan

Dog soldiers. British and excellent. Looking forward to de Vinci's demons. Being filmed in wales currently, and given how much special fx stuff they are buying off us it should be action packed

Dog soldiers - wasn't that the English film with lots of gore? Bit much for me \" class=\"smiley\" /> Watched Grand Budapest Hotel at the weekend, thoroughly enjoyed it. Might watch something tonight... Watched Only God Forgives recently, not as good as Gosling's other arty films. I'd hoped for better having enjoyed The Driver a lot.

It may be a bit mainstream for this thread but "A million ways to die in the west" is actually very funny and has some very well written lines. I'm not a Seth MacFarlane fan usually but did enjoy it.

Recently saw Belle, based on a true story and set on the edge of the abolition of slavery. Enjoyable, thought provoking and topped off with a typically understated performance from Tom Wilkinson. Have always thought he was a good actor but now know he has a good sense of humour after I heard him on Kermode and Mayo talking about "asking for the and." If you are not top of the bill then the next best thing for the money is either to be "with" or "and" in the credits. Edited by - StuB on 22 Jul 2014 07:40:13

Thanks: I'm looking forward to "Belle". Stuck in London last night and watched "The Guard" on TV. Lovely quirky film with a great performance by Brendan Gleeson. Poor quality sound and strong accents and not helped by a cooling fan. Worth seeing and worth going to see, unlike its coastal cousin. Jonathan

Is there really no "Twin Peaks" thread on BC? Unreleased sequences of "Fire Walk with Me" are due out on 29 July 2014. Promotional interview with David Lynch in The Guardian. Jonathan

Has anyone seen Kill List? Not the cheeriest piece of celluloid I have ever seen and along with Twin Peaks is one of the only films that has engendered a "WTF was that all about" reaction when the titles rolled. I did check t'internet, just to ensure that I hadn't finally lost my marbles (some might argue that point, of course) and came up with a couple of plausible explanations. I am a simple chap though and whilst I applaud filmmakers for creating thought provoking pieces, I do wonder why they go to the trouble of producing films that are sot impossible to fathom without recourse to some Wiki or other. Perhaps it's just me\" class=\"smiley\" />.

Quoting Jonathan Kay: Thanks: I'm looking forward to "Belle". I struck that off my list when I watched the trailer. I do like Kenwood House however (possibly too well, it might distract from all those heaving bosoms). However I can really strongly recommend two films centred around photographers: Looking for Light about Jane Bown and Finding Vivian Maier. Many similarities between the two. Photographers, both of whom worked with natural light, both primarily of people, principally in B+W. If you are into Hollywood all-action, CGI-heavy blockbusting star vehicles with loud music and lots of gunfire and explosions, don't go.
