'La Fille coupée en deux': Ludivine Sagnier deserves better, I have a soft spot for her because she looks a bit asymetrical from some angles. Benoît Magimel deserves better, I have not seen him in something his equal since he was rolling around on a Viennese toilet floor with Isabelle Huppert. Miss.Tic deserves better full stop, but we all have to pay the rent. But perhaps I just did not get it. Annoyingly, I cannot find a picture of BM looking exactly like a young de Niro, as he does several times in each film. Never mind, here's a picture of Benny and Ludi.
I went to that place at the weekend. The entire population of Gillingham, Chatham, Rochester and Strood were coming the other way. Here's an abandoned shopping trolley on the beach.
In a meeting, this morning, someone actually used the phrase: "A basket of deliverables." He really said that. Without apparent irony. One of these days I will bite my tongue so hard it will bleed.
I took the afternoon off.
On the bus, looking down into the shops, it occurred to me: what must it be like to be a security guard in Mothercare? Sending for the cops to deal with persistent mitten thieves. Detain one person and get a smaller one free. The defendant and the dependant. I wonder if they burn out quickly, or become somehow immune.
