Manchurian Candidate

I don't usually like re-makes, but I went to see 'Manchurian Candidate' today, and liked it quite a lot. It's a clever, well made thriller, which couldn't be much more topical. There's a nice angsty relationship at its core, and Denzel Washington strips Liev Shreiber's shirt off and bites an implant out of his back. That's not something you see every day. I only have one objection: the Hollywood ending was a travesty as always. The acting and cinematography was good, and the plot pretty good.

PS - What a lot of people lately have told me that they are having bad dreams! A lot of comments on livejournal about it. I'm not having them myself, but I wonder if its a reflection of the global uncertainty.

    I see Gove has backed down on climate change and it's back in the curriculum again.

    At the moment I have set up this journal so that only friends can comment. I hate doing this, but I was just getting too much Russian spam.
