I'd like to see this film Stephen Fry mentions in 'Moab Is My Washpot' (the first book I've read of his.) Sidney Lumet. 1983.

Can anyone tell me from where I can download it? I'm working abroad in the stix and only have a PC to play with.

Managed to download Wilde, thankfully. I've never seen a film which shows homosexuality to the incogniscenti so well and the poetry was read so beautifully it made me want to hear more.

I expect we'd all like to know what Mr Fry's favourite films are.

I thought he was perfect in the role he played, but wondered as well if the main character would have had more even more charisma with a Fry voiceover.

I never read individual post subject titles. Only thread titles. I didn't even know anyone on here bothered writing individual ones. Never seen the point when it's a nested board.

Ah, that is a great film! I'm partial to zombie films tho, I'll watch any of them and likely love it.

The Haunting (1963 version)



Agreed !

Genuinely the creepiest and best filmed ghost story I have enjoyed.

The nearest thing to it for me - ( although it perhaps does not count, as it was a book / stage play made into a film for the small screen ) being :

"The Woman In Black" ...

I have seen Monsieur Hulot, he`s very funny! I only discovered him recently because he was compared with the "Mr. Bean on holiday" film, which I like.

Other films I like at the moment:

"The seawolf" series with Raimund Harmstorff
"My fair lady"
"Bram Stoker`s Dracula"
"From Hell"
"The Game"
