Great movie. Great performances, great script, great soundtrack. I am on Facebook, but I don't really use it - that gets harder and harder when more people use it as a social tool. This film illustrates exactly why I personally don't like Facebook but I do understand its appeal. And its invention makes for a great film which is exactly what this.

Managed to get a London Film Festival screening ticket. Yay! Powerful film based on real events. I love Sam Rockwell - its what made me buy the ticket - he and Hilary Swank make this movie. I wish I had more write about the movie. Minnie Driver also has some great lines and Juliet Lewis too puts in a good performance. It's an inspiring story based on real events so if you like those kind of films, you'll love this.

Another screening from the BFI London Film Festival. It stars Eva Green and Matt Smith. Yes, that Matt Smith. Some nice performances but this film is WEIRD. Very weird. It attempts to discuss the concept of cloning. A woman (Eva Green) gives birth to a clone of the deceased man she fell in love with. The boy grows up... now what? It gave you something to talk about afterwards that is for sure, I just wasn't sure other than what the point of the film was. It wasn't a romance film exactly, and it wasn't classic sci fi either. Oh, and Hot Fuzz fans, Ralph is played by Peter Wight aka the barman in The Crown at Sandford "We got red. Or, white." That took me out of the movie for a second or two ;)
