What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Spend Spend Spend

    A superb morality play on the pitfalls of materialism and fecklessness. The laceration of this particular human condition is magnificently captured by Rosenthal - not without humour and sympathy - in a wonderful depiction of circling the plug hole. Goldschmidt works wonders on a small budget (another maxim being Less is More, perhaps something lost on the central character).
