MOVIE: GODFATHER III RECUT
Big news for fans of moviemaker Francis Ford Coppola – Godfather III has been recut
The film was largely panned for the convoluted plot when first unleashed in 1990. Godfather III about the death of Michael Corrilone (played by Al Pacino) has been reshaped and renamed and given new life. See it online and enjoy the movie trailer here. Reviews so far have been more than favorable. Bravo, Mr.Coppola. END scene!
ON AIR: THE QUEEN OF UK RADIO
Legendary BBC Radio1 DJ Annie Nightingale joins Soho Radio host Nick Carpenter for a conversation about her impressive five-decade broadcasting career. Since 1970 (from disco to punk to new wave to acid house to trip-hop & more) Annie has been sharing her passion for all styles of music. Fifty years on Annie is still beloved, still winning new listeners and new fans and remains on air weekly. I recall doing homework as a teen on Sunday nights in the 80’s when ANNIE would come on beginning always with one word: “Hi!” That also happens to partly be the name of her new book “Hey Hi Hello”! Listen to Annie with my mate Nick on Soho Radio here:
WATCH: UNCLE FRANK
This is a heart-tugger of a film about love and loss in a backdrop of ignorance in 1970’s rural America. Uncle Frank played beautifully by Paul Bethany carries the weight of his past and his unresolved family issues until all crashes in a crushing but enlightening crescendo revealing his true self and gay identity. A must-see. Have a box of tissues on hand.
