I keep old posts on the site because I often enjoy reading old content on other people's sites. It can be interesting to see how views have changed over time: for example, how my strident teenage views have, to put it mildly, mellowed.

I'm not a believer in brushing the past under the carpet. I've written some offensive rubbish on here in the past: deleting it and pretending it never happened doesn't change that. I hope that stumbling across something that's 15 years old won't offend anyone anew, because I hope that people can understand that what I thought and felt and wrote about then is probably very different to what I think and feel and write about now. It's a relic of an (albeit recent) bygone era.

So, given the age of this post, please bear in mind:

  • My views may well have changed in the last 15 years. I have written some very silly things over the years, many of which I find utterly cringeworthy today.
  • This post might use words or language in ways which I would now consider highly inappropriate, offensive, embarrassing, or all three.
  • Factual information might be outdated.
  • Links might be broken, and embedded material might not appear properly.

Okay. Consider yourself duly warned. Read on...

I’ve just been to see this, and I thought it was one of the very best movies I’ve seen in a long time. It worked on so many different levels that I think you could see it repeatedly, and have a compeletely different interpretation each time. Four of us went to see it, and none of us agreed on what it was about. But we all loved it. Someone said to me that they found it similar to Lost in Translation. I think not. This movie is everything that movie tried, but failed, to be. Closer was the genuine article, and it was an absolute joy. Five stars.
