Film 2009

Three years after this (tempus fugit eh?), "Uncle Simon" is to helm a new Bruce Willis movie; Kane and Lynch will be "the story of a mercenary teaming up with a schizophrenic psychopath to save his wife and daughter". Let's get ready to rumble!

Also, on the film beat, the HMV Curzon has opened in Wimbledon giving me on the doorstep access to art house fayre for the first time in a decade.

Bright Star and Thirst are on the agenda:
When a priest (Song Kang-ho) volunteers to receive a vaccination created to eradicate a deadly virus, he is given a transfusion infected by vampire blood. Acquiring super-human skills and a voracious sexual appetite, he embarks on a killing spree and a passionate affair with the wife of an old school friend. Not surprisingly, the new film from the director of ‘Old Boy’ is a darkly comic thriller that explores the nature of sin, and the pleasures of the flesh.
