Sweeter than wine - Softer than the summer night - Everything I want, I have - Whenever I hold you tight - that change in tempo gets me every time...listening to the Drifters as an antidote to all the sleigh bells.
meanwhile - some films - American Honey explains so much about America - it's a must see-American dream-dysfunctional-backward looking-romantic-entrenched-hopeful-searching-coming of age- road move- film which at its heart is about loss and longing.....for belonging and to be loved. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3721936/ With its endless choreographed chase scenes Fan feels like classic Bollywood. There is also a great slice of meta film-making - in one scene the actor Shah Rukh Khan plays a fan who is playing him playing himself! http://www.imdb.com/title/tt3495026/?ref_=nv_sr_1 Spectral http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2106651/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1 a Netflix construct did what it set out to do - it's a sci-fi shoot-em-up with the most excellent costumes and attention to detail - shame about plot, story and dialogue.
This week alongside working on the films for unfoldingthinking.blogspot.co.uk it's been all about trying to finish off a year's work around the teaching I do, including creating the timetables for the assessment presentations the students are to give and creating presentations that I am to give when I get back next year.
