Amazing....

20Th Century Women, a very good film by Mike Mills

“You get to see him out in the world as a person. I never will.”....so many details and nuances one can discover when seeing a film several times.

The wife....


Behind every successful man....there's a woman. The story in different shapes and time, it is often repeated, but never really ends. The director Björn Runge got a late ticket to another level and Glenn Close will finally collect her Oscar.

Roma....


At the end of the day....it is always women who keep this world from falling apart. Cleo appears like a reincarnation of God, a self denying human being with a heart of infinite dimensions. A piece of beautiful black & white film by Alfonso Cuarón (with a superb sound work).

Watching this beauty on smal screen, is definitely to bee avoided.

Vanity Fair....


Rawdon Crawley (Tom Bateman),  George Osborne (Charlie Rowe), Becky Sharp (Olivia Cooke), William Dobbin (Johnny Flynn) and Amelia Sedley (Claudia Jessie)

 “Ladies and gentlemen, this is Vanity Fair - a world where everyone is striving for what is not worth having.” declares the author William Makepeace Thackeray, played with a knowing smile by Michael Palin. 

Seven quality episodes with a group of very young British actors - and Olivia Cooke in the main role....is just brilliant. 

Not forgetting the music used in the opening credits - "All Along the Watchtower" by Afterhere (Glenn Gregory and  Berenice Scott). The track is taken from their debut album Addict.

Bo Kaspers Orkester at Scandinavium....

Scandinavium, November 23

It's hard to define Bo Kaspers music due to the many influences ....but when they turn from jazz to electronic, the music becomes special.

Best in show: Utan dig
