breaking bad

Children of Men

I didn't read the book by PD James on which the film 'Children of Men' is based because, well, SF by non-SF writer, and I thought it might be a kind of anti-contraception propaganda. However, director Alfonso Cuaron = the business. I've seen three of his films now, and he can do it all can't he. Mexican sex-soap, Harry Potter movie, now SF action thriller. All brilliant. This is brilliant. Clive Owen has never been better. He's adorable. He reminds you (well, he reminds me) of someone you were once in love with.
