Not my filmiest month! Love and Friendship was very funny, Jane Austen adaptation, in cinemas now and recommended. Also liked A Hologram For the King, and Son of Saul. Zero for Conduct is one of these terribly influential films, 1933 French about anarchic schoolkids, with some amazing scenes. I'm now getting copies of things (like If....) that it influenced.

Ryd's screening included (links here) Single to London, which I did 1AD for (various screenings, is at Toronto Smartphone Film Festival this weekend).

A much better month for gigs, but I missed two due to bad health (Dandy Warhols and Suuns), and we only caught the last 20 mins of the Shakespeare due to an incident on the train line. I'm still ambivalent as to whether it's cringey or funny, to watch a show where one actor is thoroughly drunk. Bit of both. Lots of opportunities for improv.
