Monday 21st April 2008

Monday is, of course, difficult. However, on the way into work this morning, I enjoyed a gently subversive piece of tube graffiti.

Instead of the usual chewing gum bullets blotting out the eyes of whichever two-bit actress has taken on the role of Roxie Hart in Chicago, or a biro scrawl indicating that Jamie Oliver is a "nob", this was a succinct film review of Flashbacks of a Fool, which somewhat undermined the Baz Bamigboye style snippet of typical poster hyperbole above it.

I'm tempted to seek out a poster for Mike Leigh's latest, Happy-Go-Lucky, and mark it "fairly irritating".

I also notice that (the same?) reviewer has drawn attention to the rather arrogant practice of actors who insist on being known by just a single name. You can't really make it out in the picture, but above Eve's name, someone has written "New Year's".
