The Radio Verulam Film Guide: Friday 20th January 2017

Simon, now freed from his imprisonment in an Indonesian jail, was back in the studio this week to present the film guide. Sadly, due to his prison stint, he hadn't prepared anything. He normally doesn't prepare anything, but at least this week he had a good excuse. So he based the film guide on all the films he saw while in jail. Turns out Indonesian prison is a rather cultured place, cinema-wise. We got a lecture on Fellini's 1973 classic Amarcord, Ken Loach's 1990 political thriller Hidden Agenda, and Akira Kurosawa's debut Sanshiro Sugata. None of which are in the cinema this week.

Ok, that was a lie, as Simon was in the studio to talk about the UK box office, new releases in the cinema, and his pick of films on TV for the coming week.
