Just finished the deptford trilogy by rd - fantastic story telling and just as enjoyable as the Cornish trilogy

I love Robertson Davies, I've read most of his books I think - all pre-blog though, one day I'll revisit.

Must buy the Ray Robinson book. I discovered his first two here and they are utterly amazing.

Lots of Robertson Davies love. Everyone who has read him seems to love him. But why is he not more widely read?

I finished Jawbone Lake this morning - it was a fantastic read. Gripping, plausible and engaging. Robinson is a great storyteller. Forgetting Zoe is one of my favourite reads too.

He is consistently good, Hazel, I agree. He really deserves more acclaim.

Big Mouth at the Movies

  • : The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya

    The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya
    Unlike any animation I have seen. Quite stunning. (****)

  • : The Killer Inside Me

    The Killer Inside Me
    Odd movie. Doesn't really work. (***)

  • : Gone Girl

    Gone Girl
    Pretty good, I thought, but not amazing. I had already read the book so perhaps the lack of surprise hindered things a bit. (***)

  • : The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox
    An absolute delight. Beautifully acted. Loved this. (****)

  • : Atomised

    So much better than the book. (****)

  • : 20,000 Days on Earth

    20,000 Days on Earth
    Watched this for a second time. Just as good. (****)

  • : Le Mepris

    Le Mepris
    Brigitte Bardot, Jack Palance, Michel Piccoli and Fritz Lang star in a beautifully shot but terribly pretentious movie. Palance is awful throughout. (**)

  • : Labor Day

    Labor Day
    Was this a box office flop? I think it might have been. Shame, it was very good. (****)
