It was made in 1974! One of the greats of the Auteur period.

Crikey, I feel like Spider-Man explaining pop culture to Iron Man now... :D

Every time I switch the TV on these days Iain Duncan Smith is being interviewed on the big stories of the day but I can't understand why he is now the go to politician for most news programmes. He was totally useless as the leader of the Tory Party and during his time as Secretary of state at the DWP we saw record numbers of sick and disabled people dying prematurely due to his policies. I really would like to see him introduced one day either as 'failed Tory leader IDS,' or 'Doctor Death.'
I suspect he's wheeled out because he's self-important enough to think he still matters so will agree to go, and stupid enough to not realise he's being deployed because he's entirely expendable.

Politicians, ugly buildings, and whores all get respectable if they last long enough.
Might have inspired Frank Underwood in House of Cards
Money is the Mc-mansion in Sarasota that starts falling apart after 10 years. Power is the old stone building that stands for centuries. I cannot respect someone who doesn’t see the difference.
