No film this week, but relevant reading…

I have had a bit of a crazy week, including lovely 40th birthday celebrations with my best friend in Bath and my youngest getting her teeth damaged… so haven’t got a new award nominee film watched, (although I have watched A Portrait of a Lady on Fire on iPlayer and enjoyed it) but I have been doing some relevant reading.

I have re-subscribed to Sight and Sound and it is lovely reading about all the latest cinema from all over the place. They agreed with me in their review on Tár too, which made me feel very smug. I have also been reading the most wonderful William Boyd novel. The New Confessions is a first person narrative of a Rousseau obsessed Scottish man born in 1899 who goes on to work in the British and German film industries during the 1920s. I haven’t finished it yet and it is one of those books that you can’t put down, but you also don’t want it to end. Luckily, it is nearly 600 pages!
