  • Comment on: DCMS defends BFI cuts; industry responds

    Ian Christie's comment 12-Jul-2013 12:16 pm

    Same old story, going back a long way: film isn't seen as art or culture in the UK, unless it wins an award somewhere. But it's our back-catalogue, from Hitchcock and Powell onwards, which the BFI restores and curates, that defines the UK in the wider world - and brings tourists. Just as much as the museums!

    'Underwhelming' indeed? Where has Anonymous been lurking? LVT is one of the very few genuinely original European filmmakers, able to spark public interest and strike out in new directions with every project.

  • Comment on: Brits line up against Avatar

    Nominating American films has long made BAFTA seem ridiculous to outside eyes. Nominations should obviously be confined to films that count as British by some prevailing definition - and let the 'talent' that appears in Hollywood movies take its chance with AMPAS awards.
