Tony Jones has finally redeemed himself after the Neil Young - Heart of Gold fiasco of two years ago, and how! :-)

For those who don't know what I'm talking about, today was the last day of the Cambridge Film Festival and Tony Jones is the director of the festival. Every year, they have a surprise film on the last day, where you pay your money, turn up and see a film which is a complete surprise. Past films have included things like A Cock and Bull Story. The films are normally reasonably pleasant, but not necessarily something that you'd choose to see otherwise.

Then, two years ago, they showed the Neil Young thing. I'm sure I ranted enough about it at the time so I won't do so again, but I left after fifteen minutes and waited for the others in the bar until it was over.

I didn't go to the surprise film last year, but Eeson somehow managed to persuade me this time around. Am I glad he did.

I've just been to what I believe was the UK premier of Burn After Reading, the new Coen brothers film. It is absolutely excellent and I recommend it to everyone. In fact, I fully intend to see it again when it's released nationwide on the 17th Oct.

Combined with seeing How to Lose Friends and Alienate People on Friday, it's been a pretty good weekend for films all round!

P.S. I have the interview for my job tomorrow. Wish me luck! :-)
