Next film night:- 'Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool". Monday 2 December.

Might have to catch "Sorry We Missed You" and "Farmageddon".

Nostalgiafest! There are a lot of repeats/classics/back catalogue on in December too: "The Third Man", "Les Parapluies de Cherbourg", "High Noon", "When Harry met Sally", "Airplane", "Mary Poppins", "Untouchable" and others. All in celebration of The Rex's 15th anniversary.

I won't catch them all, nor am I intending to try.

"Miles Davis: Birth of the Cool"

The undergardener and I enjoyed this. Plenty of music, plenty of well interspersed interview material with luminaries such as Juliette Greco, Frances Taylor, Jimmy Cobb, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock and many others.

It's pretty no holds barred and you can not ignore the unfortunate drugs habit (different drugs at different points in his life) nor the bad treatment of the various women in his life.

I'll be digging through the discs in my collection and listening afresh because you have to admire the musicianship. (But I like the early stuff with Coltrane not the later stuff).
