Triple Bill Thursday (Week 15)

Recording the latest High and Low (Brow) podcast last week negated any chance of me watching films that day, let alone put up a post about the movies I was going to watch. I’m guessing most of you were quite happy with the end results for that day, but this week is a different week, and with it brings an interesting blend of films. I’m particularly fond of Layer Cake, which I think is one of the best directed films of the 2000’s, and in particular one of the best color palettes I’ve seen in some time. If you haven’t seen it yet, check it out, if only to see the film that netted Daniel Craig the Bond franchise.

I review movies. I run a movie theatre. I annoy people. I let my dogs lick my face whenever they want. Sometimes I'm even a halfway decent human.
