August 17 2008 at 8:28 pm (The list)

Just the one film from the list this week:

Bambi (1942)
Walt Disney’s favourite of his films, this tackled the theme of the circle of life long before The Lion King went there. It plods along nicely, but doesn’t really go anywhere and I found it hard to truly feel for Bambi because I knew that his mum was going to get it at some point. But it’s very cute and a nice little lesson in the facts of life for kiddiwinks.

Rating: 4/5

Shame list total: 1,219

If you’re wondering why the shame list total has gone up considerably rather than down slightly, all will be explained in an upcoming post.

I also watched:

Tell No One (2006)
Despite its overlong running time, this is a very efficient thriller that didn’t get the audience it deserved because it’s French, even though it’s based on an American novel. Because I had read the novel before, I was ready for all the twists and turns that the story took but it rises above other thrillers of its kind with some great performances (watch out for a perfect French accent from English rose Kristin Scott Thomas) and kinetic direction from Guillaume Canet.
