Matty hates the French New Wave. No, he's just nominated a dvd priced at $100

In frustrating news, even if you order Amazon by price it only gives you 400 pages of search

It's not a terribly-well known film I would say, but I wouldn't say it's exactly unheard of, either.

If you want a clue.....

















The lead performance was Oscar-nominated.

Fritzl wants to have a go in this round?

Chances of him watching all the films in time....not good.

Cool. I was going to go for something else but I didn't. Interesting stuff, I know.

Now now, Matty, maybe Fritzlfan will surprise us all and actually stick to the deadline.

Now, there is a 99.9 per cent chance that my faith in him will prove to be misplaced, but still...

It will be fine. Besides, if i don't see them all I can just lie.

That's fine then.

I'm obviously not encouraging not watching the films and then saying you did, but given the shit Fritzl gets for delaying things, I often have wondered why he doesn't just lie.

When you decide who's in for the next round, and Fritzl's one of them, can't you secretly let him know what the films are?

Giving him a headstart might mean he just about finishes in time.

I'd have thought suggesting he lie was an even bigger hint.

Although we could start doing spot quizzes as tests  (which given my new habit of forgetting how a film ended that I watched only a couple of weeks ago could cause me a few problems too!)

Really, it should be fine. My track record is nothing less than exceptional.

I think realistically I'll have to pull out this time, but not in a way that would disappoint rawlinson's mum. I'll be moving away soon (unless I regret my choice even more) so I doubt I'd have enough time or access to da films.

I think I will JOIN THIS ONE. I'm thinking of a film to nom. Possibly Caligula.

Just outside Canterbury. I had a panic due to the politics/social class of the county (which I've never been to) but the university itself is supposed to be pretty left-wing so it's all good. I can also pretend to be in a Powell & Pressburger film. (Y)

I did Film Studies at Kent. Loved it there, a great campus with 6 bars, a nightclub, a massive library with a great film collection, a shop and a gym (which I never used).

Loved the course too although I was very lazy! My tutors were all very left wing, in fact after the David Kelly affair and the Hutton Enquiry I sat and listened to one of them rant down the phone to a friend for 20 minutes about the state of the modern Labour party and the way they went about their business.

What course are you doing?

Ah, cool, glad to hear it. i'll definitely make good use of the library's films.

I'll be doing Maths. Fun.
What's the cinema/theatre like by the way? The Gulbenkian? They've got a pretty good selection coming up, and some decent comedy acts too.
