Lindsey Redding, RIP

Lindsey and I worked together at Hall Advertising in the 1980’s.  He was a brilliant art director and was a good friend until he emigrated with Jo to New Zealand.

He has written a blog about suffering from cancer that, to my mind, should be required reading for all cancer sufferers because of its wit, its humour but most importantly its honesty.

I hope it stays up and that the medical profession who he talked about with respect come to find it.

You can read it here.

God bless you Lindsay.

Beasts of the Southern Wild – film review

If you dislike hand held camera work stay away.

If you dislike child led philosophy stay away.

If you dislike the American Dream stay away.

If you dislike fantasies stay away.

If you dislike originality stay away.

If you dislike cinema in which your brain needs to engage stay away.

If you think cinema is great art on occasion and can make a difference from time time to time see Beasts of the Southern Wild. (****the Oscars).
