Love Actually

(First Streamed: December 5, 2016)

It’s holiday time for the Brit Flix Guys and all is not mistletoe and egg nog for Kelly and Paul who seem to be on opposite sides of the opinion poll where “Love Actually” is concerned. Richard Curtis directs an all-star British cast in a story of nine intertwined lives which examine the complexities of the one emotion that connects us all: LOVE.  Hugh Grant, Emma Thompson, Alan Rickman, Liam Neeson, Colin Firth, Martine McCutcheon and Laura Linney (the lone American) make-up this incredibly talented cast. What does Paul and Kelly think of Love Actually? You won’t believe it!

“A Matter of Life and Death” and “Peeping Tom”

Directed By: Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger

1947

British Air Force pilot Peter Carter (David Niven) is on his way home to England from a World War II bombing mission in a badly damaged aircraft. Before he bails out of the plane into the ocean, he contacts June (Kim Hunter), an Allied radio operator with whom he shares what he believes to be his final moments on Earth.

LifeDeath

“Peeping Tom” Starring: Carl Boehm, Anna Massey

Directed By: Michael Powell

1962

Loner Mark Lewis (Carl Boehm) works at a film studio during the day and, at night, takes racy photographs of women. Also he’s making a documentary on fear, which involves recording the reactions of victims as he murders them. He befriends Helen (Anna Massey), the daughter of the family living in the apartment below his, and he tells her vaguely about the movie he is making. She sneaks into Mark’s apartment to watch it and is horrified by what she sees — especially when Mark catches her.

    Hello I’ve just watched your channel for the first time and love your review of School for Scoundrels. A pleasure to watch two people enjoying a film I’ve loved for years. You have great taste. A beautifully made film. Perfect razor sharp wit. It certainly stands the test of time, and I think it’s because it’s a film about human beings and 50 odd years is a blink of eye in evolutionary terms. The film also draws you in, making you feel like you’re in that time, so it’s impossible for it to feel dated.
    Mr. A. Brit
