Have been doing some catching up on the DVD collection:
Californication, second season. There will be a third season? Great: Here’s hoping that it keeps up the pace! And that Charlie Runkle can keep his hands … well, somewhere else.
Gomorra. Bleak and totally brilliant. If you thought Sicily was bad, Naples is worse. Much, much worse.
Happy-Go-Lucky. Can you make a movie about a sanguine school-teacher? Mike Leigh can. And then some. Exuberant and utterly brilliant. Bonus: The angriest man in the world. World as in the universe.
