Gidleigh Park

Remember just over a year ago, when I went to Michelin-starred restaurant The Kitchin? Well, by a similar token, today I went to the two-Michelin-starred Sunday-Times-best-restaurant-in-Britain, Gidleigh Park.

It was very nice, thank you very much.

this week on 100 Films

Just 1 new review was posted to 100 Films in a Year this week...

Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison (1957)
The title may sound like a ’40s rom-com or a ’70s TV sitcom, but Heaven Knows, Mr. Allison is nothing of the sort. It’s set in the south Pacific in 1944, at the height of World War II, and... What we get is almost relentlessly a two-hander, but not the kind where a pair of characters sit around and natter until something turns up to end their conversation.

After none last week, it's a bit pathetic. But at least there's the April update too.

More, hopefully, next Sunday.
