Taking Liberties Blogger Outing...

There will be a bit of a blogger outing to see Taking Liberties today. Meet at 4.15pm outside Brixton Ritzy for the 4.30pm showing if you fancy it, and fancy a pint afterwards.

The film opened last night and I can't stress this enough, it is bums on seats over the opening weekend that determines whether films sink or swim.

Therefore if you are vaguely thinking of going to see it, it would be dead helpful if you could act on that urge over the next 48 hours. Cinema listings nationally here. Site here.

This is a really important film and it needs to reach more than the usual activists and politically-aware bloggers. Take your mum and your little brother. Take your flatmate who moans that it's too muggy to sit outside. Take your mate who chunters when he reads the Sunday papers. Take the person you have a crush on. (Getting mutually outraged means passion rises over a drink afterwards and you'll also look very smart and zeitgeisty. Wah-hey). Look, please just go and see it. It's not exactly hard work. It's a damn entertaining movie. And your grandchildren will thank you for it one day.

Don't just take my word for it...

I'd be up for it, but I am still in student mode- and it's wearing a bit thin....

And let this be a lesson to the little boys and girls: study hard when you're young so you don't have to be like Auntie Kris stuck indoors when she should be out having a laugh!

Went to see it at The Arts in Cambridge last night, only about 50 bums there I'm sorry to say :-(

Brilliant film very disturbing - interestingly the film preview said 'contains disturbing scenes" which could be intepreted in many ways.

Personally I think it should have a screen that says photography and reproduction welcome.

Well done, you came over really well and the content is truly shocking and disturbing. It deserves a really wide audience - lets hope it gets onto youtube.
