Londinium – best bloody movie I’ve seen in months. I made a quick pass through the HBO’s as I was sitting down to eat a bowl of Spanish rice and was about to accept my fate and watch a few minutes of Mr. Deeds when a chubby version of Colin Firth’s face filled the screen. And even stranger, he wasn’t dressed the usual 19th century English aristocratic bit. In fact, I didn’t even recognize him at first despite having seen him in at least a dozen other movies. He plays one of four very well developed characters in an extremely interesting and surprisingly simple study of relationships. This is definitely a movie for the DVD rack.
