TV REVIEW: Peaky Blinders – Season 1

I originally attempted to watch Peaky Blinders when I was pregnant and fell asleep because basically that is what you do when you are pregnant cos everything is exhausting. I had kind of forgotten about it until one of my friends from my NCT (antenatal class) group said that she and her husband were hooked. Mr O and I found ourselves looking for a new series over Christmas so we decided to give it a go. Read more…

Your dreams are the scene of the crime

In a world where dreams can be intercepted and secrets stolen, Dom Cobb (Leonardo DiCaprio, who is starting to look pleasingly weathered) is a master burglar with a focus on industrial espionage. Finding himself on the run after a job goes wrong he is offered a final chance to put his life back together by the enigmatic Mr Saito (Ken Wanatabe), although it will mean an attempt to plant, rather than steal an idea, something considered to be impossible. As Cobb and his assembled team go deeper than ever before they find themselves facing not only the defences of their subject’s (Cillian Murphy) subconscious but also the spectres haunting Cobb’s own before they come face top face with the very nature of reality.

Exquisitely layered, magnificently shot and perfectly cast, it needs to be seen on the biggest screen you can possibly find. I have the attention span of a gnat and 148 minutes I didn’t want it to end. I can only liken the level of awe to the first time I saw The Matrix. Do not wait for this to come out on DVD, go and see it now!
