Cultural Life: Edgar Wright, director
Wednesday 18 December 2013
I've seen Gravity twice on the big screen, I can’t imagine there’s going to be something else that comes along that blows me away quite like that did. I know people that worked on it, not just Alfonso Cuaron the director, but the composer Steven Price also did my film The Worlds End. I also really enjoyed Short Term 12, Frances Ha, Blue Jasmine, I really really liked Spring Breakers.
In one big marathon on 4OD, I watched all of Toast of London, the Matt Berry show with Arthur Mathews which I thought was really funny. I also watched Mark Gatiss's Adventure of Space and Time, the documentary about the making of the first Dr Who with David Bradley.
I read Stuart Maconie’s interesting book The People's Songs about the history of British Pop Songs. I also read Nile Rogers biography Le Freak, and Stephen King's Joyland, which is the first King book I’ve read in 20 years.
I saw The Audience which was fantastic. The Cripple of Inishmaan with Daniel Radcliffe which was good. I also saw Chimerica, The Book of Mormon, Macbeth with James McAvoy, and Joe Wright's Trelawney of the Wells so that’s pretty good going!
Edgar Wright’s film The World’s End is out now on Blu-ray and DVD.
