Good man. I'm rewatching my box set of him. I keep meaning to start a thread on his films.

Jumper K wrote:I was exposed to his documentaries from the late 40's at university and his directorial work from the 50's to the early 60's really resonates. Very much in the realism/neo realism schools, dealing with society and its problems, proto kitchen-sink IMO. If you can, see Johnny On The Run, the cinematography is superb in its depiction of Edinburgh and surrounds.
I like, a lot, his war themed films and my favourite Bond is You Only Live Twice. I consider Operation Daybreak to be an overlooked classic. Its almost shot for shot perfect and, echoing his documentary roots, plays like one. Truly great.


Great shout. I really want to see some of his early 50s films now. I'm a fan of "The Good Die Young".
