Philip Ridley of 'The Reflecting Skin' and 'The Passion of Darkly Noon' has a new film. And this one is set in contemporary Britain, and it looks like the film I've been waiting for. Please, oh please, let it be as significant as the trailer presents it.

The reviews are excellent, Frank! It's only showing in Bristol for four measly days, all of which I'm on call for so I'm going to miss it.

That's a shame, John, because this even tops Inception for my must-see list for 2010. It looks spectacular. The Reflecting Skin is one of my all time favourite movies.

Zed - for some reason I was about to write the trailer reminded me of that story of yours, the one with the teenager who's out to all hours with his 'mates', the one whose father worries about his ever increasing silences, moodiness, etc, but I thought it sounded too much like being a kiss arse, but that's what I thought when the main character in the trailer says 'there used to be no go areas, and areas you could go, and now they're all no go areas'.

I think this going to be fantastic.

I'll take the compliment, mate.

OUR KIND is a very old story...I must've wrote that 10 years ago. God, I feel old.

Ridley is an exceptional writer his collection Flamingoes in Orbit and his play Vincent River are stunning, a mix of brutal realism and playful imagination. I remember being knocked out by his radio play October Scars the Skin about twenty years ago. This new film is great news.

Using Wikipedia, Ridley seems to be a bloody genius. Not only does his writing cover both adults and children, he's also a playwright, a screenplay writer (The Krays), an artist, and has even penned a song sung by the like-wise genius that is PJ Harvey.

And Lord Probert - fear not good sir, Heartless is being released theatrically, on blu-ray and dvd. No kidding, check it out on Wikipedia.

He's a leading children's writer at that! I once read an interview with him when he described his typical working day. Get up at twelve and have a slow breakfast, then go for a walk. Do some shopping. Have a late lunch. Listen to some music. Walk by the river. Watch the sunset. Go to bed at 9pm with a notebook and write for the next eight hours without a break. Then go to sleep.

Now that's my idea of true contentment.
