  • Aarrgghh!

That's only half the answer I'm looking for.

There's no mention of Expose, which was a British film on the DPP list.


That's cheating! I bloody told you last night!

I thought Jonny was referring to Expose in the first place.

I've added a Letterboxd list for those of you who want to keep track of which films from the book you have and haven't seen. There are quite a few missing in the tmdb database, so those of you with time on their hands are more  than welcome to add them and I'll update the list accordingly.

Nice one! I've been making mental notes of the films I've not seen as I've been reading it. This list makes things a little easier!

Managed to download a copy of THE LIFETAKER yesterday so I'll be giving that a look tonight, had never heard of it before reading about it in this book.

Definitely looks like it's worth a watch.

How much of the book have you read Jonny?

I obviously want to read the 70's area the most but am being strict with myself and reading it cover to cover.

A few pages short of 100 at the moment.

I haven't been as strict as you and dove in mid-70's and I'm reading from there at the moment. Read the introduction and first 30 pages or so too.

I've just been popping in and out of it at random. Haven't read loads though as I tend to read two or three books at the same time.

Well, I'll have to wait until March!  :(

But... just preordered it from Sainsburys for a rather cheap £11.99 if anyone wants a good deal on the paperback.
