The Man Who Laughs - film review

quote [ Conrad Veidt?s performance is absolutely superb. The make-up artist who created his look also deserves special praise. Jack Pierce?s work became a direct influence for The Joker in early Batman comics and the onscreen adaptations that followed. Today, this is what The Man Who Laughs is likely best remembered for although the lighting and atmosphere of Paul Leni?s film would also serve as an inspiration for many of the Universal Studio?s horror movies that followed ]

Interesting review. Did not watch this one. But behold? it's available online.

A Licence to Watch Television

quote [ In many countries, owing a television involves more than one type of cost. First the device itself, which may cost, depending on your taste, from several hundred to several thousand dollars. Then, there are subscription fees for television channels and online streaming, as well as electricity cost. And lastly, a tax for owning the television set, especially if you live in Europe. ]

It's mostly channel 3 cause we don't pay our licence fee

Gilliam once commented. ]

Superlofty, but why not revel in thoughts?
