Lockdown watch
« Reply #1 on: April 12, 2020, 12:37:15 AM »
Matthew Holness in The Guardian (8 Apr 2020) continues a series on what to watch if you are in lockdown.

A strange article which mentions the Japanese Gozilla films, The Andromeda Strain and Chuck Norris fims.  But is concludes with:

"Music emerges as the true solace of lockdown, courtesy of Ken Russell’s 1960s documentaries on Elgar, Debussy and Delius for the BBC’s Monitor and Omnibus series. These wonderful and stylistically innovative films lead me inevitably to the veritable haven of their subject, which succeeds more than any other art form, I discover, in settling the anxious mind."
