What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Beaton by Bailey

    Two routes to the same destination. An interesting portrait of Beaton by then wunderkid Bailey, who observes his elder with pragmatic reverence. Of course the titular portraitist is no more the author of this piece than the director; perhaps an early example of something we now suffer from en mass where few documentaries can sneak by without being pre-packaged with some kind of celebrity endorsement or crass signpost
