The best film that never was
When I woke up I knew exactly what I wanted to write about today.
It was a film that I'd seen on the TV late last night, and it went by the elusive title of "LM" (nothing to do with Crash magazine's Lloyd Mangran, idol of ZX Spectrum fans everywhere, or Newsfield's pre-Loaded "young men's lifestyle magazine" that he inspired; nor Living Marxism for that matter).
It was a Gilliamesque hi-sci-fi fantasy set in a dystopian near future Britain, and it starred Shane Richie being suprisingly adept and charismatic (as in I didn't want to punch him in the face).
It came across like a future-Funland, not suprising since it was cowritten and directed by Mark Gatiss, Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant.
It was one of those things that you watch and you wonder why you'd never heard of it before.
And then I realised that I'd watched it within my dreams. Bugger.
