This romanticism isn't just confined to her career; it's evident in her home, too; she built a fairy-tale house, surrounding it with a waterfall and a babbling stream. And it permeates her work life; even though she has a high-flying, pressure-filled job in UCC, she uses every spare minute to immerse herself in the theatre and film world - her new love. But of course, as well as the romance, there's a steel edge and a fierce intelligence; she wouldn't have the position of associate vice president/director of European relations and public affairs if she didn't have the chops for it, nor would she have her PhD in microbiology and food chemistry, which is what this elegant Cork woman went on to specialise in, after first doing a science degree. Science was, in fact, her second choice of degree. "I thought of medicine first, but I missed it by two points in the Leaving Cert. I repeated the Leaving Cert and did get four points more, but the points needed had gone up. I was happy to do … [Read more...] about Law and order: Peek inside this elegant detached country home
For many, Casablanca is not just any old movie but the old movie. When Woody Allen was looking for a heroic exemplar for his nebbish cineaste in Play it Again, Sam, it was to Bogart’s Rick Blaine that he turned. When Nora Ephron wanted to illustrate the practicality of women in When Harry Met Sally, it was Bergman’s example she held up (“I don’t want to spend the rest of my life in Casablanca married to a man who owns a bar”). The source of endless spin-offs, parodies and skits, from the Marx Brothers’ A Night in Casablanca to Saturday Night Live, Casablanca is the movie we go to when we want to invoke movieishness itself, the dream factory at full tilt, a heroic foil to our mock-heroic age. As Umberto Eco put it in Casablanca: Cult Movies and Intertextual Collage, “It is movies”. This cultural ubiquity has entailed a certain sniffiness from critics, whose estimation has tended to chime with the Warner Brothers script reader who first … [Read more...] about ConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlightConsumerBusinessSpotlight Playing it over and over again: how Casablanca was made Pungent as Old Spice and smooth as cheap nylon: the BBC’s Law and Order 40 years on
KATIE Price suffered a horrific ordeal when she was victim of a car jacking in South Africa, but a local tourism chief has insisted she was not targeted because of her fame. The former glamour model had opened up about the attack last week, where - alongside two of her children - they were ambushed by thugs and said: "We're lucky to be alive." But local tourist boss Athol Stark has said: "Some people are saying this group was targeted because of Katie Price and who they were, but I believe that was absolutely not the case. "This was just the case of people being in the wrong place at the wrong time." They were with a film crew when three thugs forced their way into their 4x4. A minder was hit in the face and gems, cash, laptops and camera gear worth tens of thousands of pounds in total were snatched. Model and businesswoman Katie, 39, told a friend: “We are lucky to be alive, it could have been much worse.” Terrified Katie hugged Junior, 12, and Princess, 10, as the … [Read more...] about Katie Price’s carjackers had ‘no idea she is famous’ and she was just in ‘wrong place at wrong time’
PUNK has always been poorly served by mainstream cinema. Most evocations of that uniquely 70s youth explosion that have made it to the big screen are cliché-ridden borefests that generally fail to capture either the excitement or the revolutionary quality of the original musical movement. All phlegm and no feeling, the likes of The Punk Rock Movie (1978), Breaking Glass (1980) and The Great Rock And Roll Swindle (1980) may have hoped to shock and outrage when they first appeared but today they come over as trite and quaint little pictures of a Britain long gone.Best of a very bad bunch, and believe me it's far from perfect, is probably Derek Jarman's 1978 offering Jubilee. Clearly made as a visceral reaction to the cloying royalist pomp that surrounded the queen's silver jubilee in 1977 but released a full year after the event, it's a violently nasty picture of a future Britain broken and battered beyond repair.Coming on like a cheapskate Clockwork Orange, Jarman's film paints an … [Read more...] about Cult Movie: Jubilee serves better as a document of 70s Britain than as a punk film
