It's grim up north. One of my favourite films and one that I'm pleased to be finally able to share. Cold, damp and as unglamorous as they come. Thoughts?

Somewhat mythological feeling. There is something to be said for a film which affects your testicles more than any other part of your person. Or is there?

I'm not so sure about that, but I am certainly affected by this film. It's so damp and grim; that shot of the funeral driving down the steep cobbled street - the wonderful final sequence - Carter's grim and methodical satisfaction. Brilliant. Some British films are always on the cusp of being brilliant and are even better for not quite getting there, I think. Can't wait to see 'Radio On' and 'Withnail'.

So - why the testes?

Smashing villains head through car window, while wearing tailored suit. Total testosterone inducer.
