The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson

Sunday, November 29, 2015

I’ve just seen ‘The Ecstasy of Wilko Johnson’ directed by Julian Temple. The Dr Feelgood guitarist is filmed during a revelatory last year of life as he is given ten months to live from pancreatic cancer; a William Blake ecstasy as all material things come into transcendent existence, from scenes round Canvey Island to monasteries in Japan, from shimmering pavements to majestic trees against the sky. He is an atheist who fears no death. Rock and roll is for many theultimate zen of living-in-the-moment and he discovers and describes what that truly means. Try to see it. You’ll cry but be uplifted. Even changed.

Fargo Season 2

Sunday, November 29, 2015

`Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Lewis Carroll’s Jaberwocky in my childhood day was the precursor to The Goon Show and Monty Python. Daft and gentle. In a stroke of dark, venomous humour the poem is put into the mouth of Bokeem Woodbine, a Kansas City killer as his car travels an ominous empty road towards conflagration. It becomes a hitman’s anthem. Fargo Season 2 is even better than 1. The fabulously inflated classical allusions, the death toll, the black humour, the wonderfully diverse cast. Utterly fantastic.
