Following the death of Hollywood uber-agent Ed Limato a few days ago, the usual platitudes rolled in. But so did a slew of rather less kindly views on the 73-year-old agent's career, whose client roster has boasted some of the highest- profile actors in the business, including Richard Gere, Denzel Washington, Steve Martin and Mel Gibson.

Whether it's Sex and the City, The Wire, The Sopranos, Six Feet Under or Curb Your Enthusiasm, HBO has been storming the small screen for years. In a celebration of the channel's success London's BFI Southbank, from tomorrow, will host an HBO weekend. Screenings include parts one and two of The Pacific from the creative team behind Band of Brothers, and the first episode of Treme, from Wire creator David Simon. "HBO is ground-breaking in so many ways," says Justin Johnson, one of the BFI programmers working on the weekend's events. "There was a point when The Sopranos was coming to an end and Six Feet Under had finished, that people wondered what HBO were going to do next, but with all these new shows like True Blood and The Pacific, they've proved that they're a real phenomenon."

Apparently Carriers was completed, then shelved, two years ago, and it's only being dusted off now because its star, Chris Pine, has since made his name as the new Captain Kirk. It's unfortunate timing. An indie thriller written and directed by a pair of Spanish brothers, Carriers has an amazing amount in common with both Zombieland and The Road, and so, by coming out such a short time after the former, and such a short time before the latter, it's likely to be dismissed as just another post-apocalyptic road movie.
