Some films. A Cock and Bull Story sees Steve Coogan back to his best. It's an adaptation of Laurence Sterne's 18th century non-novel The life and times of Tristram Shandy, Gentelman and rather appropriately it's a sort of non-film. Coogan and co-lead Rob Brydon work very well together, ably supported by a star-studded mainly British cast. It's very, very funny. It also has a great website: http://www.tristramshandymovie.com/.
The other films were more serious. Proof is in the same mould as A Beautiful Mind, in that it explores mental illness in smart people. This time, maths genius Anthony Hopkins goes nuts and is looked after by his daughter, Gwyneth Paltrow. Gwyneth is also a maths genius, it turns out, and as well as inheriting her father's skills with numbers, she finds after his death that he also passed on his more wacko tendencies to her. An uncomfortable sort of film. The third film I couldn't watch. Shooting dogs covers the incredibly painful events that took place in Rwanda in 1994. The little I could watch of this suggest that it is a brilliantly done film, full of integrity and honesty.
