This month's Blind Spot is the classic western by italian director Sergio Leone, Il Buono, Il Brutto, Il Cattivo (1966). Starring Clint Eastwood, Eli Wallach and Lee Van Cleef, it's hailed as one the absolute best movies of all time, but did it live up to the hype? Or was I just bored out of my mind?
For the month of June I picked Stanley Kubrick's Paths of Glory (1957) as my Blind Spot! This director's controversial anti-war movie approaches the themes of glory seeking and dehumanisation in times of war with his trademark aesthetics and dark humour.
Back with a new entry for book feature Top Ten Tuesday! This week, we explore bookish worlds we’d never want to live in. I could be persuaded to spend a night in a few of these (provided I would be safe at ALL times), but definitely no longer than that. Read on for some terrifying fictional places.
