Is there any way of stemming the flow of post-Guy Ritchie cockney crime comedies? Would, say, sticking Danny Dyer's head on a pike somewhere in Bethnal Green be enough of a deterrent? Because I for one would be willing to pay that price.

* Tim Robbins offered himself up as living proof of how difficult it is to vote in the United States – he had to get a court order before he was allowed to cast his ballot for president. The Shawshank Redemption actor and staunch Obama supporter arrived at the polling station where he has been voting for years, only to find his name missing from the register. "I have not moved, I have not changed party affiliations. There's no reason why it shouldn't be in the rolls," he complained. After the Board of Elections confirmed that he was a bona fide voter, a judge issued an order allowing his presidential preference to be recorded – some five hours later. One wonders if his partner and fellow thespian, Susan Sarandon, encountered similar strife.

I'm now 21, but I definitely read more books when I was a teenager. These days, I'm reading more film scripts than books – but I can't say what for because it's secret! I enjoy reading books on criminology about hard guys and drug dealers. I read the autobiographies of Curtis Warren, Roy "Pretty Boy" Shaw, Lenny McLean, and Charles Bronson. I had a crack at No Logo: Taking Aim at the Brand Bullies by Naomi Klein, but didn't finish it.

Paul Haggis's In the Valley of Elah explores the consequences of a tough patrimony, which is all the more desolate for being nobly intended. It has a quite towering performance at its centre. Tommy Lee Jones, his face as iconically craggy as Clint's, plays a Vietnam vet and former military policeman, Hank Deerfield, whose son, recently returned from duty in Iraq, has gone missing.
