Have you seen the new Brighton Rock film. I can't imagine I will like it - particularly as they have moved the action to the 1960s and introduced a Mod element...why?! (more) and bagged+3

    Howard Davis posted a message to Matthew Batham Hi Matthew, I studied Greene for my degree. My favourite books of his are The Quiet American, O...Hi Matthew, I studied Greene for my degree. My favourite books of his are The Quiet American, Our Man in Havana, The Comedians (his best, I think) and his last novel, The Captain and the Enemy. His film treatment of The Third Man is also excellent as is The Lawless Roads telling of his travels through Mexico to research his novel The Power and the Glory. I still hear the voices of Pinky and Spicer when I'm in Brighton - though I must admit I never really grasped his obsession in writing about Catholic guilt. He was an interesting guy - smoking opium in back street dens in Saigon, playing Russian roulette to stave off inert boredom... and much much more. Happy reading, Howard (more) and bagged+3
