Zoot Alors! It's been a long time since I jumped up half way through a movie spluttering on about how we are all infected with this nihilistic value free mayhem that masquerades as entertainment. But 'We need to talk about Kevin' is one of the most disturbing horror films I've seen in years with a mesmerising performance from Tilda Swinton, a withering soundtrack from Radiohead's guitarist and a lean arch American suburbs look that just about seals the alienation effect. This continues Director Lynne Ramsey's work as further evidence of her Glaswegian misanthropic genius. The question must be asked-'what else does the cineastic hyper-realist have in store for us? Highly recommended. *****

Last night I watched Ken Russel's "The Devils' which I haven't seen since the 70's. It's a superb movie and reminded me forcibly why we should despise and be intolerant of the religous mind and all it's poison.
