In The Guardian, Alexis Petridis penned a fantastic reflection on the UK’s scary public information films of the 1960s to 1980s. For more than 60 years, the government’s Central Office of Information (COI) created FUD-fostering films about talking to strangers, playing with matches, sticking things in electric outlets, rabies, slippery floors, etc. The COI was shut down last week due to funding cuts.
LION (2016) Dir. Garth Davis DOP: Greig Fraser. Not only is this little actor the cutest kid to hit the screen in 2016, but what an astounding performance he made in this film. Beautiful aerial shots of India as well.
