FOr some reason all the movies I’ve tried to watch recently have proven to be rather disappointing. Am I becoming more demanding? The only worthy thing was BBC’s “The Crimson Petal & The White”
A compelling Victorian tale of revenge, The Crimson Petal & The White tells the story of Sugar, an alluring and intelligent young prostitute. Sugar longs for a better life and when she secures the patronage of successful businessman William Rackham, she begins to hatch a scheme that will free her from her life in the slums. However, as their worlds become more entwined, Sugar’s plans set in motion a series of events that will change both their lives forever. It is an engrossing drama with a twist that viewers will want to watch again and again.
Well, I wouldn’t say I’d watch it over and over again, but there was definitely some food for thought, and all the vintage interiors, costumes and things were a pleasure to observe.

Still haven’t seen anything worthy recently, except may be “Mildred Pierce” which was interesting from two aspects – establishing a business in the US during Depression and relationship between a mother and ungrateful daughter.
Has anyone already seen “The Jungle Book”? There are lots of positive reviews, but I still remember myself falling asleep in the cinema when watching “Life of Pi” – in spit of all the excitement around that movie.
I think many people would find Medem’s “Ma Ma” boring, and I know in person some of those who actually did. But I watched it with great interest – when a problem speaks to you, every word and every detail is full of meaning.
