Movies

Hellboy II
The absence of epic, because the absence of tragedy, because no main character can die. The last Batman got its hit from Heath's having died.

Old Boy
How extraordinarily Jacobean. I mean, revenge drama. So literal.

In Bruges
A Wildean comedy of manners. Though sister Sally tells me it's unsound on the Walloon question.

CWP seems a real find - hadn't heard of him. Is Old Boy on at the moment? I'm a Cyborg but that's OK sounds a must-see.
