The first season of Master of None was very good; the second is so good it’s a little bewildering. The opening episode is filmed in black and white and pays homage to mid-20th century Italian cinema; another traces the coming out of a lesbian woman of...... Pubdate:

28/05/2017: AGENDA: Paul Nash, the Sainsbury Centre
When I first visited the Sainsbury Centre in Norwich, I was fresh from a decade in London and convinced everywhere else was terribly parochial, so was astonished to walk in and meet several works by Velázquez and a Degas ballerina. There is currently a...... Pubdate:

28/05/2017: AGENDA: The Dylan Thomas Boathouse, Laugharne
I recently went to Laugharne to see where Dylan Thomas lived with Caitlin [Macnamara, his wife]. The wonderful thing was that the whole of Laugharne belongs to them still; in the hotel where he used to drink, they still talk fondly of “Dylan” as if...... Pubdate:

Gillian Rose was an English, Jewish philosopher, who wrote this memoir as she was dying of cancer. But it’s far from “just” a memoir. She digresses into the limitations of religion and philosophy, what it means to be Jewish, the tricksiness of sexual...... Pubdate:

Get Out is everything a horror film should be: frightening, funny, mindful of the conventions without being derivative, fabulous to look at and – importantly – about something other than itself. The lead (Daniel Kaluuya) has such an expressive face...... Pubdate:

28/05/2017: AGENDA: Tim Winton, The Boy Behind the Curtain A friend recommended this as an antidote to my temporary inability to read anything over 100 pages.
