the stoner.....legendary movie!highly recommended!
21:00 - TV3 - Mullholland Drive
00:00 - BBC2 - Requiem for a Dream
Two of the great modern films make for one exciting double bill tonight.
Mullholland Drive being wonderful David Lynch mind trip.
Requiem for a Dream being the finest drug drama, from the great Darren Aronofsky. If anyone has yet to see / hear of it yet, I recommend watching this with no preconceptions. Anyone who has MAY not want to watch again.

*insert shock here* Great week for TV if you have digital - some terrific films showing:
Sunday - Garden State / Secretary - Film Four from 9 - the former being one of my all time favourites. Two quirky little numbers.
Monday - Hidden (Caché - Sky Movies Indie (7 pm) - one of the finest European films of the last few years
Persona - Film Four - 2.25 AM (ooh.. late) - Must check this out - some Ingmar Bergman for all of you all
Tuesday - I Heart Huckabees / 5 X 2 - Film Four from 9 - the former: existential slapstick comedy. The latter: bizarre French relationship drama.
Wendesday - Brick / The Death of Mr Lazeracu - Film Four from 9 - Brick being my favourite of last year, TDOFL being a difficult but rewarding watch that litereally does with it says on the tin.
All week - Slither - Sky Movies Premiere - hilariously dark B Movie satire. Pretty demented, hugely entertaining.
Lots of terrific films in there, well worth watching all of them. One or two I havent seen myself, so looking foward to them. You very rarely get a TV line up this good, so check some of them out! Probably wont all be for you, but everyones bound to find something worthwhile in there.
Turner and Hooch is on the telly
Network 2 (yes.)
