My Films: Day 6

Thelma & Louise, 1991

I have sat here, just looking at a blank page for ages. I have no words. It’s visceral.

Thelma & Louise – parallels may be drawn with Butch & Sundance, I guess. I shall leave others to do that.

One of my all-time favourite films, featuring what may possibly be my all-time favourite song recording. Two gorgeous women on the run.

I have no idea what is going on at IMDB. 7.4? Pfft! Rotten Tomatoes scores it at 84%, which is slightly better.

I cannot believe that any reader will not know this film. If you don’t, then may I recommend that you grab a copy and watch it just as soon as you can.

Director: Ridley Scott! I had not been aware of that. This is nothing like Bladerunner… Nor had I realised that he is British or that he directed some episodes of Adam Adamant and Z-cars. Despite the fact that I had thought that Ridley Scott is not “me” – apparently he can at times be so.

Feeling a bit seedy

Nell and I went for a walk this morning. It was a gorgeous day but we ended up by not going very far. The Crooked Man had gone out and I was expecting a parcel delivery. Plus, I was finding it hard going. Not feeling on top of my game right now. Possibly a touch of “Keto Flu”? I’d like to think so, but honestly haven’t been working hard enough at it to have gotContinue readingFeeling a bit seedy

An interesting morning. Up and at ’em we went to Intermarch√© to fuel up and to buy some food for when we arrive home. They were queuing outside the door for what appeared to be controlled entry. There were queues for fuel too. “We’re not that desperate” we said and set off for home. It… Continue reading October 29, 2020 at 10:24AM
