My Inspiration for January

31 Jan

This month I watched lots of films, and I can’t resist mentioning most of them because they were simply marvelous: The Fearlesss Vampire Killers (1967), A Taste of Honey (1961), Danish Girl (2015), While We’re Young (2014), Russian Ark (2002), The Toast (2010), Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa (2013), The Trip (2010), and a documentary about Hermitage museum. Film Alan Partridge is so funny, I liked every bit of it. Here are a few quotes: ‘Get rid of her, Lynn, she’s a drunk and a racist! I’ll tolerate one, but not both‘, I think it would be a bit sexist to let all the women go out first. or What’s it like in there?Ah… scary, stressful, lots of shouting. – A bit like being married again.

I’ve read lots of books too but I’ve finished reading only Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien and Shirley by Charlotte Bronte. Oh, and the next post I’ll publish will be about one of these paintings. Can you guess?

    I am surprised you are into Alan Partridge, I love it, but all the women I know hate it! His original TV show is fantastic and I really liked the film. The Trip is absolutely brilliant too, I would recommend the sequel – The Trip to Italy which is just as good, they visit a lot of places associated with Shelly and Byron which I think you would like.

      The film gave me a good giggle, I loved his sense of humour, I’m surprised somebody would dislike it! I think you can learn something from Alan – taking advantage of every situation. Yeah, I watched The Trip to Italy, but it wasn’t as amusing as the first part in my opinion, had high expectations since the plot was connected to Byron and Shelley. I think the Lake Poets got a better treatment. Thanks for commenting 🙂
