Short Shine

I'm not usually one for declaring favourites, but whenever anyone asks me what my favourite movie is, I began saying The Shining about 3 years ago, when I saw it for the first time. Channel 4 has just made a lovely promo for a bunch of Kubrick movies they're showing. It's like taking the nouns from an elegant poem and making the font nice, and laminating them. I quite like it.


  1. cool, yeah, "the shinning" has been on my short list of "movie movies" (genre flicks that transcend their genre, top of their craft) since I saw it. Also "Chinatown" "the French Connection"

  2. Movie Movies. I dig that, Ross. Some people would also say Blade Runner, but you know, I fell asleep during that one. Twice. The only movie I ever actually fell asleep during, in the cinema, was LA Confidential. I was brought by a film director who was passionately in love with it at the time, that was his fifth time seeing it, and when I woke up, I could see from his face that he felt betrayed.
