The….  film….. my first thoughts were …”Charming”….. characters were… well thought out…. little characatures of people in his life…. or should I say… larger than life ………he was superb… T. Spall…. moments of sweetness … and solitude ……. his thoughts on nature… all rang huge bells for me ….. he WAS a true artist.. a genius …. well they were all excellant ….. I was totally absorbed throughout the whole thing ……  but then I do get ‘taken over’ by films…..

At the end…. a person sitting next to me …. turned to his partner/wife ….. and said ……”what was that all about? …. what a waste of money ….. don’t know anything about him anyway.” …. I had to bite my tongue Ian ….. and restrain myself…. .

If you can….PLEASE….go see it at the Picture house….it does require a big screen….. it’s still buzzing around in my head….
