Your FRI: Donnie Darko

Love it because…My all time favourite. And Jake Gyllenhall is so cute!

Your FRI: Carol Dweck on Ted Talks

Love it because…Education re-imagined. Like all Ted Talks rather profound, but this one has stayed with me.  It’s the power of knowing you can improve.

Watch it!


Your FRI: Harry Potter and the Cursed Child

I won't be watching it for another year, but I recently scored tickets to Harry Potter and the Cursed Child, JK Rowling's 8th Harry Potter story, to be performed on stage in London's West End from next summer.

I'm fully expecting an audience of 30-somethings revisiting our adolescence and loving every second.

Your FRI: THE HUNGER (1983)

Susan Sarandon’s boobs in this movie are genius. The opening credits sequence with Bauhaus, and Peter Murphy actually appearing in the movie behind the cage, singing ‘Bela Lugosi’s Dead’. Just the elegance and grace of this one, as far as vampire pictures go. Everybody always says, ‘Oh, those outfits are so great,’ but I do think Susan’s outfits are really good and her hair and her corsets, and the ageing make-up on Bowie when he’s sitting in the doctor’s office and he ages a hundred hours or whatever it is. It all looks so real, and the lighting is so perfect and those beautiful 80s rays of light. To me, it’s the most glamorous of the vampire pictures.

Watch it!


Your FRI: THE LOST BOYS (1987)

It was probably the first vampire picture I ever saw, and there are just so many good things to say about this movie I don’t know where to begin. From Kiefer Sutherland to the music – that one iconic song, (starts singing) ‘Thou shall not kill’, and they’re on that bridge in Santa Cruz. I feel like, visually, it’s just like candy to me. The boys are so beautiful, and the comedy between the Coreys… When I was growing up I had pictures of Cory Feldman and Corey Haim on my wall. So there was the accessibility to the young boys and their comedy and then the sexiness of the older boys and their darkness. I think there’s such a great balance of that in the movie. And Dianne Wiest as the mum, she’s one of the greatest actresses of all time. And they go to that strange cave where they all live and it.

Your FRI: A BIGGER SPLASH

Tilda Swinton's wardrobe in 'A BIGGER SPLASH' is a thing of true beauty. Plus Ralph Fiennes dance scene to the rolling stones 'Emotional rescue' is something i'll never forget.
