Re: Talking Pictures

Rarely seen Peter Sellers film tonight if you're into rarely seen Peter Sellers films.

Hoffman (1970)

Hoffman is a film without much of a reputation, which is a shame because it contains one of Sellers’ most interesting performances. Famously, he considered the end result to be too revealing of his own personality and offered to buy back the negative from EMI. This in itself is fascinating because Hoffman is a troubled, dark character, a man who becomes obsessed with the woman he imprisons in his flat for a weekend for the purposes of blackmail. It’s a complex and enlightening turn, with Sellers appearing gaunt and grim, spitting out misogyny and simmering with suppressed rage. The film falls apart after the first half and never becomes the battle of wills that it promises to be – no reflection on Sinead Cusack’s excellent performance – but it’s full of interesting things. It shows a demon inside Sellers which we now know to have been ever-present in his life and it’s not comfortable to watch.

Re: Talking Pictures

Whilst in the UK last year renovating the house it it came up over tea and butties one morning that I'd worked in the film business. The plummers mate started on about his love of film, he's 21. He'd seen virtually nothing shot prior to millennium, would point blank not watch anything black and white, if I may quote "if it was any good they'd have remade it in colour." It was all I could do not to brain him with his pipe beading kit. I had to settle for telling him I'd worked on  a film shot in black and white myself (purely artistic reasons in 1987.) His butter hovered below his chin as the thought bubble formed above his head, "just how old is this bloke?"  Ultimately, I just couldn't talk to him as him waxing lyrical about shit with Vin Diesal and and cars was not good for my blood pressure.
