The Null Device

This evening, I visited a friend with a DVD player and watched a DVD of A Clockwork Orange (on a tiny, old Amiga monitor; his TV has no video in sockets and Macrovision puts paid to the idea of piggy-backing through a video recorder). Two things I noticed about said film: (a) how much of the acting has a theatrical quality about it (in particular, the actor playing Georgie looks as if he's saying his lines on stage), and (b) how much the characterisation of the prison warden is reminiscent of John Cleese. Wonder whether that was deliberate.

I also had a look at disc 2 of the collectors' edition of Fight Club. Well worth looking at; the short pieces about how they did the special effects were particularly interesting (at least to someone who has played around with computer graphics).
