the simple life

"One ought, every day at least, to hear a little song, read a good poem, see a fine picture, and if it were possible, to speak a few reasonable words." Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Whisky is global cinema at its best.

Film Threat's words, not mine.

Seems like I'm on a roll here. 2 superb films out of 3.

Not too bad.

"Whisky has no big, dramatic moment to allow for spleen-venting soliloquies. Instead, it is a symphony of small gestures, throwaway glances, brief exchanges of unexpected observation and silences which actually say more than pages of dialogue."

It is a very understated film. Many things are left unsaid. We are left to guess, to stare and to fill in the blanks.


Performances are marvelously unforgettable. If you have a chance, visit the Film Threat link and check out the poster. Very nice, especially for those who have seen the film.

Don't say cheese.

Say whisky.
