The Legend That Is Christopher Doyle

How do I feel?

Like a pig has shat in my head.

Last night? She said . . . Bar Lorca in Brixton is a) not in Brixton, but in the dark triangle of Stockwell-Kennington-Camberwell: the land of moochers and no mistake; b) actually the old White Horse - only the name has been changed so . . . c) still a hovel.

My friend's old band are dated and iffy, I'm pretty sure he's back dallying with the Horse - and I drank my age in units of alcohol. I had a shocker, replete with the typical end of the evening Spanish Inquisition - always unwelcome and seldom necessary - from another friend as to the state of my novel and my so-called life. This topped off a night that had found me talking to this ex-public school guy who gave the impression of having read fuck all as an adult, bar the corpus of Andy McNabb (he of one usable quote, I'll admit: "Suicide - the arsehole's way out"). I told him to get hold of The Great Gatsby . . . and go from there. Such types do make me wonder.

So, aside from spewing up during Bono's inevitably smirky and falsely self-deprecating lecture at the Labour party conference this afternoon, this is going to be a quiet day. I have no boosters left to turn up.

The link is a rollicking interview with Christopher Doyle, lensman extraordinaire. Yes, he's awfully fond of a sherry. A boat drinker. He regularly bashes just about everyone, from the West through to Quentin Tarantino. You'd never guess he's Australian. Yeah, a striney bastard.

For good measure, there's another recent interview here - and the excellent Reverse Shot also has an in-depth feature on Richard Linklater among other cookies.

And there's one more little striney gem here. (Here hare here ... at the ha ha wall. Nah, don't worry if you're going Huh? What the fuck? It's yarbles. Pure London yarbles. Time to send for a rhesus negative Bloody Mary.)

After that, ladies and germs, I suggest you converse with Dr Google if you want more of the living legend that is Christopher Doyle . . . or, better still, watch In the Mood for Love: it's majestic.
