Are you local?

Phil and I went to see The League of Gentlemen’s Apocalypse tonight. Suitably enough in a ‘local’ cinema, where 7 others join us in a auditorium that could take 250+.

It is surely the oddest film I’ve seen for a long time.

Parts of it don’t entirely work, parts of it are genius. Several stunning one-liners and moments of pure comedy absurdity forgive any less successful parts however and I'm grinning through 90% of it (though of course the stomach churning revulsion caused in 1% by some rather grime toenails shouldn't be underestimated!).

Phil sums it up pretty well when he says “it might not be a masterpiece, but it’s certainly a phenomena!”.
