New Old Age

Further to the recent viewing of A Month In The Country - a film I hadn't seen in about 17 years - a mention of an excellent website dedicated to trying to getting the film reissued on DVD. The website looks like a real labour of love, and you can't help but admire such dedication.

I wish there were more websites like this out there.

And as a throwaway, one of my favourite passages from the novel on which the film was based.

I have often wondered why some films look set forever to be lucky finds on TV or (these days) YouTube and similar media sharing sites, whilst utter tosh gets put on DVD. (Utter tosh is basically any film made these days - don't know about you Darren, perhaps it's simple nostalgia at play, the new films are pap compared to the quality of films from yesteryear (on an average).
