What are people saying?

  • Richmond Hill's rating of the film Doris and Doreen

    A less endearing iteration of Bennett’s seeming obsession with the perceived banalities and petty oneupmanship of office life, already drubbed in A Visit from Miss Prothero and A Woman of No Importance. Aside from implying he’s pleased with himself for being above such ministrations - and demonstrating little understanding of them anyway - this is Bennett treading water or filing the same chit for the umpteenth time.
