An ambitious, kaleidoscopic David Bowie documentary that’s both intoxicating and exhausting, Moonage Daydream is a glorious feast for the eyes and ears that throws everything but the kitchen sink onscreen.
Despite the slow deliberate pace and three-hour running time, I was completely captivated by this beautiful, layered adaptation of Haruki Murakami’s short story about infidelity, grief, art and the impenetrable mystery of other people’s lives and secrets.
It’s always a huge shame when a book doesn’t live up to a strong opening, and so it is with this underwhelming village murder mystery that joins a short list of Christie novels I’d class as total duds.
I haven’t followed a legal TV drama since the heydays of The Practice and Ally McBeal, but recently I got sucked into watching this endearing, warm-hearted K-drama about a rookie attorney with autism spectrum disorder (ASD).
It seems that millions of people absolutely loved this book, but sadly I wasn’t one of them. Despite the strong start and some of the most exquisite descriptions of nature I’ve read, I finished it out of sense of obligation more than anything else.
Murder, stolen plans, locked room mystery and a menage a trois. Hercule Poirot is faced with four mystifying cases in what is by far the strongest and most re-readable collection of Christie’s short stories.
