S EVERETT's Comments
Anonymous - who says WOMEN don't have a love for cinema? With only 1 in 10 feature films directed by women, why not do something to address the balance - even if it starts with shorts? The fact there is a fund for shorts is good news! Apart from for female filmmakers who aren't in London, presumably? Why see something that is positive as being negative? And why do people who make negative comments always do it anonymously...?

Great news. Good luck, Simon!
Comment on: Friends and colleagues remember Chris Collins
What lovely tributes to a genuinely lovely guy. I hope Chris knew how we all felt about him. Still hard to believe we won't see him again.
Comment on: Vanishing director George Sluizer dies
The Vanishing is an amazing film. Unforgettable. I was lucky to meet him once, and he was such a lovely guy. So open and down to earth. At least he managed to finish Dark Blood after all this time. That must have made him happy.
Comment on: UK industry reacts to Tessa Ross leaving Film4
Tessa Ross is a legend. She will be hugely missed. The shoes she leaves behind for filling are as big as boats...
Comment on: John Travolta fears for future of film
That's a bit snidey, Anonymous, the jibe about Battlefield Earth. What about Saturday Night Fever, Pulp Fiction, Get Shorty...? He is speaking a lot of sense.
Comment on: MGM pacts with Fox on Poltergiest
'They moved the headstones... not the bodies.' Poltergeist is a total classic, a note perfect film. Shame we can't have the original back on the big screen just as it is. Originality wins over remakes every time.
Comment on: Sony to remake A Prophet
A company called Original Film doing a remake? Ah, the irony...
Comment on: Why Sightseers is the British film of the year
You REALLY should go see this film. It isn't like anything else out there. A real original. It made me laugh so much that I wanted to punch the air. It's dark and twisted fun.
Comment on: PGA to bestow Selznick honour on Working Title
That's brilliant news. A big well done to Working Title.
