Cutting Class

So, today sees the “network premiere” of the St Trinian’s reboot (2007) on Ch4… not that “network premieres” really count for much these days, what with the abundance of film channels, cheap DVDs and interweb torrents. Still, it’s bound to mean … Continue reading

Zen and the Art of Passion

I’m always reluctant to recommend anything to do with The Mail on Sunday, but their You magazine does occasionally have some interesting interviews… and this week their cover featured the ridiculously gorgeous Caterina Murino! Apparently she’s a big name across … Continue reading
