3x06 Programme 6 [season finale]
A more low-key series-closer than Outnumbered usually does, I thought. Good news that they show no signs of stopping though -- I miss it already.
[Watch it (again) on iPlayer.]

Wallander [Swedish]
2x05 Cellisten (aka The Cellist)
One of the more interesting things about Wallander is how it can do an episode about the Russian mafia, featuring car bombs and multiple murders, and still feel resolutely low-key. It has a knack for making the improbable feel almost real.


Mind Heist by Zack Hemsey

The lovely music from the third Inception trailer, written especially for it. Beautifully Dark Knight-y. One 'review' of the trailer described this track thusly:

and the music...the way it grates into your head, into your nerves, it puts you on edge while simultaneously making you feel that this is the most important movie of the year and that the stakes are so high in this, how can you not go see it?


You can listen to it streamed here. It's available to buy once the film's out, but if you're A Bit Naughty you can actually download that stream. But you didn't hear that from me.

Interesting review of Kitano's latest, offering a different perspective to most.

RIP Douglas.

As mentioned in the Telegraph article. It's 11 years old, but it's still largely relevant.
