The Life and Death of Colonel Blimp
Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger, 1943
There are certain films I avoid revisiting for fear that they might not live up to my own opinion of them, but I rewatched this at the weekend and it was pretty much as sublime as I could possibly hope. The excess consumption of Malibu may have played its part, but, my existent love for the three top-billed actors notwithstanding, I did find salty tears running down my face on more than one occasion for the loss of some nebulously English sense of decency.

7 Fabulous Names from the Credits of Lost Highway
I don’t know what it is about David Lynch films, but they always come up with the goods when it comes to utterly inexplicable names in the credits. I think this is my favourite list yet.
