Interesting.

The Pumpkin Eater was on the box the other day. It's desperately sad, as is The Lonely Passion of Judith Hearne but both with premier actors and performances.

Went the Day Well ? (it should have a question mark after it) is a firm favourite of mine.
Nonsense to the aggressiveness, I've seen more aggression on the my little pony message board......I mean I was told.

So what do you think about these films ?
You copy and paste OPs and then don't follow through on them.

You'll have seen some comments and recommendations from others.

I think they are mighty tempting, I'll see what I can find on youtube, for starters. I particularly want to see "Went the Day Well?"

There are 2 or 3 intriguing trailers for that on YouTube but I've not recently come across the whole film.

On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

Now that's one I did see. A very disturbing film. The sort of thing where I recognize its greatness, but really only need to see it once.

Yes. For me: not to be missed. One of a kind.
