Just did 4 hours in the car. Once the kids dozed off managed to sneak on National Radio.
Simon talks to influential British director Mike Leigh about his new film Happy Go Lucky, and his unusual working method. He also looks at Rolling Stones documentary Shine a Light, and the film about real life maths wizards who broke the bank at Las Vegas, Twenty One.
I usually enjoy Simon’s reviews but this interview is brilliant. Two very bright people and Mike Leigh gives no quarter but I think likes that Simon asks some intelligent questions. Not out on podcast yet but bookmark it.Fuzzie Movie
The first movie this year that looks worth spending the $30 for tickets and $40 for the sitter looks like Hot Fuzz which had a preview in Wellington last night. I really like Simon Pegg. If you haven’t seen the Spaced series yet, grab the DVD.
The had a pretty good interview with Kim hill on National radio this morning. If you liked the Swedish song they played first (I did) it’s called Young Folks by Peter, Bjorn and John, off the album Writers Block. Not on iTunes but you can catch it on their MySpace page.
