This week we take a four film trip to the magical land of cake, whisky, stuffed sheep stomach, meaningful plaids, lochs, and legends. Scotland, home of bagpipes, 70s band Nazareth, and our very own kilted Kevin, gets its due with an intensely unfocused look. Finally! First we sit at the feet of a young Maggie Smith and hear her whimsical praises for Franco and Mussolini, as we witness The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie. Next we take a cue from fairly recent politics and try to heavily exploit the North Sea Oil beyond any reasonable expectation but are thwarted by a Local Hero. Still desperate for cash, we find a new inspiration with the Clown and the Wolfman and take up mugging Restless Natives. Finally, after so much time in the lovely country the gave the world Danny Boyle, we run afoul of some yuppies and stumble upon a Shallow Grave.
All that and some rambling more. Join us, won't we?
